Have a look at a guest blog I did for Molly Jo about Doors Open yesterday.
On the last Sunday afternoon of July, I came back to Wellington Street to take in the exodus of one of the machines in the La Machine event from the Supreme Court. Kumo the giant spider left under a clear sky on the way to her final destination at the Canadian War Museum. Long Ma was to follow, making a stop at Victoria Island before the evening festivities. It wasn't just Kumo in this procession; raised platforms that followed her contained the musicians who were playing music during her walk. As you can see, the crowds loved it. It's quite an event to watch unfold- the operating crews are visible, but both of these machines also move in a way that looks entirely natural and makes you forget you're looking at a machine. Have a look at the video for this one, #6.
