Harbinger, 2007

The Met Tower, Carlton and Younge Streets, Toronto, Canada
I was commissioned to create an artwork for this 43-storey condominium development. Noting the streamlined design of the tower, I proposed creating a light-based piece that signaled the wind speed at the top of the tower. The result is an artwork entitled Harbinger. Utilizing LED technology and meteorological equipment, the ‘beacon area’ of the tower floods with coloured illumination in accordance to a set wind speed/colour scale at night.

The piece has been active since late June of 2007.
