Illuminite and Biolumen light art installations

Downtown Toronto is breaking out the bling with artistic light installations known as Illuminite during the month of March 2024. Six pieces are spread out around the Eaton Centre - one at Yonge-Dundas Square, one overlooking Y-D Square, one at Shuter Street and three in Trinity Square Park from March 1 to 31, brought to you by the Downtown Yonge BIA and all lit up daily until midnight - reminder they have more impact after sunset. Ethera is shown at top.

The installations in Trinity Square Park are ethera by Ariel Weiss in Trinity Square Park, SPECTRUM by Mirari, co-production of Quays Culture and Quartier des spectacles Partnership and SAM LAMP by Sam Hardwicke-Brown (which used to be in College Park).
SPECTRUM - this has speakers at both ends and you can see your sound waves leaving and the echo and return light. One of my favourites of the installations
Someone modeled for me in SPECTRUM

SPECTRUM is an interactive installation with microphones built into the stands that hold the circles of light. Verbal communication "becomes a cascade of waves and luminous pulses, illustrating the fascinating trajectories of sound. Watch as your message moves from one end of the circles to the other. You will see how small gestures – invisible reverberations – can have a big impact."

Biolumen - you can spin the tubes
Biolumen in the large public square opposite the Toronto Eaton Centre and adjacent to one of the busiest pedestrian areas of the city features The art installation features "ten large luminescent structures where art, science, and nature merge. Inspired by deep-sea Radiolaria, “Biolumen” represents resilience and beauty in harsh environments."
Along Yonge Street you can find BIOLUMEN by Radha Chaddah x RAW Design (Yonge-Dundas Square), digital drapes by MattCreative at 19-21 Dundas Square and You were here by Meghan Cheng at Shuter Street which features lighted butterflies that animate as people walk by.
