Our Common Home

This interactive public art exhibition fuses art and technology to echo our troubled relationship with the planet. Four large-scale interactive pieces can be physically explored on the LED screens on Jerry Moss Plaza, while a fifth collective artwork extends the experience online. Using face, hand and full body tracking, Our Common Home allows users to influence digital artworks in real time, while exploring how our individual decisions have a global impact.

About the Pieces
Open your mouth, move your hands, strike a pose or make a face! Come and experience these large-scale interactive artworks on Jerry Moss Plaza!
Creatures is a paradoxical allegory for both human interference in the animal kingdom and the fascinating wonders of nature. Whether controlling their trajectory or watching their demise, we are reminded of the often hostile character of the human/animal relationship.
Products is a digital mirror of our contribution to global waste and consumerist culture. These amusing litter jets lamentably all end up in
the same common water stream... How long before we all drown in it?
Icebergs is a melancholic spectacle of our planet’s vanishing polar ice caps. In a digital depiction of our bitter reality and the climate emergency we led our planet into, Icebergs illustrates how a part of ourselves dissipates with these broken glacier pieces that slowly disappear.
Telescopes is an endless network of human faces you can manipulate through your own facial expressions. This power we have is a reminder that we are also part of the environmental chain of influence. From small gestures to bold actions, this human-level ripple effect is real and impactful, and the direction it takes is in our control.
The sun is a symbol of collective consciousness. Extend your journey online by adding to the collective artwork.
Iregular is a Montreal-based digital art studio that creates audiovisual installations, large-scale sculptures, architectural projections and scenographies, with a focus on interactive and immersive experiences.
At the crossroads between art and technology, these artworks experiment with geometry, light, sound, typography, mathematics, algorithms, communication protocols, AI, and machine learning. Iregular also develops its own proprietary technologies.
The studio works with the infinite and random combinations produced by interactive systems that the audience ultimately influences and transforms. The interaction is at the core of it all. It is only the relationship between the people and the piece that finalizes the artwork and gives it meaning.
Iregular has a catalog of more than 50 artworks that toured in over 25 countries and has received a long list of prizes and awards for the design, technology, and creativity of its productions.
Iregular was founded in 2010 by Colombian-Canadian artist Daniel Iregui
