Project Description

Ferris Wheel was part of Scotiabank Nuit Blanche in 2013, as part of Pat Macaulay’s curated section, Parade, on University Avenue in Toronto. Decorated with LED lights and multi-coloured wire, two 15-foot tall spinning rings turn freely in the wind. The large circles, which move in opposite directions, create dynamic lighting effects in endless variation. The whirligig did not accommodate passengers but is instead an exploration of colour in motion. Easily dismantled and moved in a 12-foot cube van, the nomadic sculpture echoes the travelling sideshow.
