John Notten's Over Floe at Cityhall

The climate change art installation is now floating in the pond at Nathan Phillips Square in Toronto as part of ArtworxTO. I first saw this piece in Lake Ontario down at Ontario Place and I really enjoyed it.

From the ArtworxTO website: "Five geometric forms have somehow floated into this urban setting. Animated by the gentle breeze of the square, this grouping of small icebergs presents a mystery: viewed from all sides it becomes clear that they are more than merely chunks of ice floating in the hot sun. The ironic use of materials used to construct these 'natural' forms and their unlikely presence in the heart of the city presents questions about the environment for the audience to consider. "
