A Large-Scale Public Art Mural That Appears To Warp The Street

A public mural in Montreal that manipulates the street surface and creates the illusion of large ripples.


Canadian firm NÓS has created a large mural for the Montreal Museum of Fine Arts that lines the Avenue Du Musee in Montreal.

Titled ‘Moving Dunes’, the mural manipulates the street surface and creates the illusion of large ripples that have been designed to recall the features of a body or a face.

The reflective spheres and geometric shapes of the mural amplify the patterns and multiply the points of view.

As someone moves around the mural, the street transforms, shapes are reversed, and the ground comes alive and destabilizes.
