Lights From On High

Hey ther nighttime, how you livin? It’s all dark and whatnot. How are you going to read signs when your out there? You’re totally drunk! I’ve got the solution for you right here. Lights at night, nightlights. This project goes by the name of “Intersection Signalétique.” It’s pretty! Lights from up in the sky, down to the street, up into your eyeballs. As advertisement, as direction, as decoration.

This is a system for the world to show pedestrians the way in their everyday nighttime. This light system is currently placed on the intersection between two major streets in Montreal. The current system, still an experimental prototype, was made up of several projectors suspended from towers, synchronized with the traffic light system already in place. It projects lights on the crosswalks, notifying the passers through of when it’s safe to cross. That and some ads for nearby events while waiting.

This project is part of the Quartier des spectacles Lighting Plan: http://www.flickr.com/photos/quartierdesspectacles/sets/72157621905776298/ and is described by the designers as “a unique way to show visitors the ebullient cultural activity in the Quartier des spectacles, right on the neighbourhood’s main drag of Sainte-Catherine Street.”

    This has been done but for indoor shows/markets. I don’t mind it if its done for special events/directions to a venue…but its a low priority.

  • Several recent studies have shown Proscar is effective for hair loss and can help regrow some hair on some people, but as I said before, the use
    of 5AR inhibitors only deals with a part of the problem and are generally not very effective when used as the only treatment.
    All you have to do is brush your hair with this product for about fifteen minutes at a time.

  • People have died on the operating room table even with the best of care.
    They are more than just gaps in a wall that let

    properties. Breast reconstruction, for those who have undergone a mastectomy,
    as well as cleft lip and palate surgery are common examples of reconstructive surgeries.
