"Rail of Light" at Scotiabank Nuit Blanche

The Junction Triangle will be hosting an art exhibit titled "Rail of Light" during the annual all-night Scotiabank Nuit Blanche art festival, on the night of October 2 2010. Here's a brief description from the Rail of Light website:

Rail of Light will see the Wallace Avenue Footbridge transformed into a huge, sparkling chandelier. Every three minutes, the whoosh of an electric train racing by in the darkness – quiet, clean, efficient – will add a subtle but atmospheric layer to the piece.

Rail of Light will be visible from blocks away, in various directions. Vehicles passing on Dundas Street West will be unable to miss it. Subway travelers emerging from Dundas West Station will spot the glow. Pedestrians walking north or south towards it on the West Toronto Railpath will easily see it from afar, and when they arrive, they’ll be able to stand beneath it, or sit on one of the park benches, listening for both the actual trains and the audio we’ve incorporated. They can then climb the 56 steps to the top, cross the bridge, and descend, framed in light, on the other side.
