Eleanor King's night moves

After a successful Public Gardens installation for last year's Nocturne, Eleanor King is working on a similar one for Toronto's Nuit Blanche. Using radio broadcast and LED lights, she'll highlight the sometimes forgotten Taddle Creek, which is buried under bits of Toronto. "I'm interested in highlighting these natural phenomenons that get lost due to our own urbanization," says King, who'll split her time at CFAT working on sound editing, transmission and the technical details of the piece, as well as another project for Eastern Edge Gallery in Newfoundland. A scanner, a beaten-down typewriter ribbon and a projector will help her create this stop-motion animation project, which she admits is sort of uncharted territory for her. "I guess that's what these residencies are for, trying to explore the technology I don't normally have access to."

Thu Aug 4 and 11, 4-6pm; Tue Aug 23, 3-5pm, Centre for Art Tapes, 220-1657 Barrington Street, book appointments at 422-6822

Survey Asks

Should council use the yet-to-be-finalized Centre Plan when debating new developments?

  • No, it doesn’t exist yet and is still likely to change
  • Yes, thousands of hours of work and consultation have gone into what’s already assembled
  • Maybe, it really depends on what’s being proposed by the developer
  • I don’t know what the Centre Plan is and do not wish to participate in this poll
