SPHERES unveiled

National Film Board

The unveiling of SPHERES (2020) took place at the NFB on Wednesday, November 23. This work of public art was created by famed industrial designer Michel Dallaire, in honour of animation master Norman McLaren. The work is located outside the Îlot Balmoral, home to the NFB’s headquarters. This landmark building was designed by Provencher-Roy and belongs to the Société d’habitation et de développement de Montréal (SHDM). The title SPHERES is a reference to an animated short of the same name co-directed by McLaren and René Jodoin.
