nuit blanche detail......

Kim Adams' Nuit Blanche exhibit "Auto Lamp" transformed a vehicle's traditional function to that of an urban lighthouse, of sorts (see below). On a rotating base, at the corner of Queen & Yonge, light pored out of the vehicle's punctured body. Close-up on details I find more appealing than the whole. Polka-dot mayhem. Bling-bling book cover. Pac-Man reunion? Freedom dispersed*~*

 

Nuit Blanche is an international one-night event that originated in Paris in 2002, offering accessible interactive art in public places. 2010 was Toronto's 5th annual staging of the event.

  

* not a diptych.....the line down the centre is in the artist's lighting design.
