An interactive Christmas card


Joliette is starting a new holiday tradition with a giant, interactive greeting card in the centre of town.

It's called La Grande Carte Blanche.

Multimedia artist Emmanuel Sévigny of studio Playmind created a show that will be projected on to the large "card" -- a giant white screen.

The projection uses music by David Drury and historical photographs taken during long-ago holiday seasons in the Joliette area.

Viewers can add their own holiday messages to the projection through text message.

And Children can pose for a photographers and then have their own image added to the nightly projection.  

La Grande Carte Blanche runs december 8 until January 5, 2013.

Listen to Jeanette's interview with Emmanuel Sévigny.
