In Montreal, a private-public partnership developed a remarkable lighting design for Quartier des Spectacles. Toronto’s a bit different….less bold, less centrally organized, more conservative but with a thriving counterculture that sometimes shows a wonderful spontaneous anarchy.
I’m looking forward to Radical Illumination, an art-mob graffiti event at Spadina/Queen in Toronto on December 8th @ 11:11pm. Featuring throwies, glowing sticky devices that can attach to any surface, participants can join in the fun and participate in a temporary art experience reclaiming public space. Throwies were developed by Graffiti Research Lab, whose motto I love:
Dedicated to outfitting graffiti artists with open source technologies for urban communication.
