Luminous Mural by Mousseau

Light and Movement Within Color

Like a stained glass window that becomes luminous when light passes through it, the mural is illuminated by a system of back lighting made up of 1,280 metres of neon tubes in eight different colors. These colors, used individually, alter the shades and even the colors of the mural. Each change of source color creates a new picture, in a way. The plays of light constantly overlap, producing a nearly infinite variety of effects and colors, and virtually perpetual change in Jean-Paul Mousseau's mural.
