Sépaq – Parc national du Lac-Témiscouata

Installations of the Park Path Experience at the visitor center in Parc national du Lac-Témiscouata, part of the Société des établissements de plein air du Québec (Sépaq) network: external signal element and non-traditional exhibition emphasizing the park’s natural and historical elements, encouraging visitors to discover them in situ.

The exhibition in the visitor center evokes the typical atmospheres found at the park‒lake, river and mountain‒through three arches where photos, textures, organic elements, soundscapes and light effects offer visitors a multisensory immersive experience. The park’s global territory is presented on an oversized map embedded in the floor. When raising their heads, visitors discover the park’s animal emblem, the Bald Eagle, flying over its vast territory.

The external signal element is a monumental work of art made from engraved slate. The engravings recount the major chapters of the park’s territory history, from the Paleoindian period to the present day.

Overall, the installations created by Merlicht will provide visitors with sensory experiences that evoke the sense of place of the Parc national du Lac-Témiscouata.

Montréal Botanical Garden 2013

Giant jigsaw puzzle in the Your garden exhibition, at the Chlorophylle Room of the Montréal Botanical Garden’s greenhouses.

On a long table equipped with a compartment to store the puzzles pieces, adults and children assemble the image of the different sections of the Botanical Garden.  All the components are digitally designed and manufactured.
The puzzle pieces are made of printed foam, a lightweight, durable and washable material. They are designed to resist years of repeated handling by children. They are also safe for small fingers.
