Watertable all wet

Artist Lisa Steele and Kim Tomczak's multimedia art installation hangs down under a small section of Toronto's Gardiner Expressway. The area is a little off the beaten path, just outside Old Fort York and across the road from some new condos. The concept is interesting: blue neon waves of light mimic the lakeshore while the sound of crashing waves is broadcast through speakers. Both the sight and sounds of the art is available during the day.

It is an interesting piece but it's simplicity belies it's apparent costs of over $100,000. Here is a Youtube video showing the lights and sounds of Watertable.
