1426 Bloor Street West
Opening Reception: Sun, Jan 14, 7-9pm
GLOW is a dynamic art installation that creatively explores the subtleties of light and shadow using luminescent cord. Located at a neighbourhood bar in the Junction Triangle, this window display will enhance the soft qualities of light formed by the venue’s namesake, The Gaslight.
The front windows of the building will be filled with a web of luminescent cord focusing the view on an elevated lantern. Arrayed in a geometric pattern evoking beams of light, the cord will illuminate from an installed black light. The spill-over of light from busy Bloor Street and the adjacent intersection will also illuminate the cord intermittently and create curious shadows that permeate through the venue.
By day, the artwork forms a complex visual display. By night, the luminescent cord is activated by its dynamic surroundings. Referencing the gaslight as a welcoming beacon, GLOW will create an ambience of warmth and respite, to invite pause and participation.
