October 4th - "nuit blanche" comes to Roundhouse Park - Part 2

In the Roundhouse Park area, there will five artistic performances.  Here are the first four:

1. Wild Air Vision Electro: Vehicle Art Installation, 2014

Location: Across the street (Bremner Boulevard) from the Coaling Tower

"Creating live for the public during a 12-hour period, 2 artists will transmute the surface of Subaru's Outback & Legacy vehicles through painting & sculpture. Each is re-interpreted to highlight the dynamic between the organic & the engineered." ... click here for more info

2. The Arctic Circle

Location: Lower Simcoe Street and Bremner Blvd (Northwest Corner)

"Come see a wolf wax and wane with the moon, a hare swallow a black hole, a fox flash lightning, an owl embody a swarm, and a polar bear emit the Aurora Borealis like breath. The Arctic Circle reveals the embedded phenomena within us all." ... click here for more info
3. Solar Dehydrator, 2014

Location: Northwest section of Park, under the Coaling Tower

"Toronto Hydro searched for artists to submit proposals for a contest to re-purpose an old fridge for their Fridge & Freezer Pickup program. After public voting, Mora's design to transform a refrigerator into a solar dehydrator was selected and produced!" ... click here for more info


Location: Northeast corner of Roundhouse Park

"HOLOSCENES is a performance installation that is a visceral, visual and public collision of the human body and water. The large aquarium-like sculpture — inhabited by performers — can be flooded with up to 12 tons of water in a minute." ... click here for more info

Below you will find images of the fourth installation (above) with some of the performers rehearsing.
