FOUNDER
Martin Gagnon,
I.E.S.N.A, I.A.L.D President and Creative Director

Founder and President of Ambiances Design Productions since 2006, Martin Gagnon has pursued his career in lighting design and creative direction. For over 20 years, he has taken part in architectural, museum-related and artistic projects by taking on many positions such as Lighting Designer, Scenographic Designer, Creative Director and Producer.

During his career, his expertise in the business has enabled him to participate in several projects in the arts field, and he is a long-time collaborator of Robert Lepage (Elseneur, Jean sans nom, Zulu Time, Moulin à images, Aurora Borealis – co-creator of this light work). Martin has also collaborated in the creation of visual environments using light and video with several museums such as the Musée de la civilisation de Québec, the Musée Pointe-à-Callière and the Smithsonian Institute.

The installation of a luminous marquee at the Casino de Montréal, the lighting design at the Auberge Saint-Antoine (I.E.S.N.A award), the preliminary lighting concept of two halls for two of the Cirque du Soleil’s show venues, the revitalization of the Salon Urbain at the Place des Arts with Sid Lee / Aedifica and the lighting design of the Winnipeg Casino with Smith Carter architects are just a few examples of his involvement in institutional and commercial projects.

In addition, Martin has also conceived the scenographic and lighting design for Dubai’s fifth film festival. He collaborated with Beau McClellan to create the largest chandelier in the world installed in Qatar where, with his team, he was responsible for the interactive design and video content. He was also the Producer and Creative Director of Fresque de nuit, a multisensory large scale outdoor show.

Motivated by a desire to unite form and function in each of the environments in which he participates, Martin uses state-of-the-art multimedia techniques to stimulate the senses and believes that a thought out and profound narrative content is the most effective tool to establish a strong, convincing and lasting relationship with the public. According to him, technology should always be employed at the service of creativity, not the opposite way.
