Community Channel

STATUS: short-listed awarded, design & fabrication, estimated for permanent installation October 2013.

Community Channel initial sketch

Community Channel is a permanent lighting installation for the entrance-way roof of the Bronson Centre (Ottawa, ON).

The installation comprises a group of larger-than-life, illuminated silhouettes of various community members (men, women, and children), each individually illuminated from within, programmed with seasonally shifting colour palettes that in the short term gradually fade in and out of phase with one another. When the colours are out of phase, the sculpture broadcasts ideas of diversity, while once in phase, the sculpture illuminates in unity.
