Nuit Blanche 08 - Ryerson University
LIGHT UP THE NIGHT: Sitting Ducks
School of Interior Design, Theatre School
Visual Art, Light Installation, Interactive duck blind
Be part of nature in the city and visit the ducks of Devonian Pond - located in the heart of the Ryerson University campus. For one night only, the live ducks that traditionally visit the pond will be replaced by hundreds of environmentally friendly man-made ducks - bedazzled with light and playfullly moving throughout the water.
Adventurous and more serious duck enthusiasts can try their hand at 'hunting' specially marked ducks behind an unusually equipped duck blind. Just how far has the man/nature discourse really come? Even if you aren't a hunter, this will definitely be a supernatural urban experience.
Devonian Pond, corner of Victoria and Gould Streets - Sitting Ducks
Join us as we pay tribute to the live ducks that traditionally visit Devonian Pond. For one night only, these Ryerson canards will
be replaced by hundreds of yellow man-made friends - bedazzled with light, poking through the haze and playfully moving throughout the pond. Adventurous souls can also try their hand at ‘hunting’ in our special duck blind. Just how far has the man/nature discourse really come? Even if you aren’t a hunter, this will definitely be a supernatural urban experience.
