Have a look today at my writer's blog, where today I feature a photo post on this past weekend's Army Run event.
I have gone to see the multimedia show Kontinuum several times during its exhibition in downtown Ottawa this summer; you may remember a post I did on it in early August, so today we begin a series. The show wrapped up a few days ago, and was set in a future LRT station beneath the core. Kontinuum was quite popular, drawing in more than 300 000 visitors during its run, and was staged with the idea of having around seventy people in the exhibition at any given time, taking about a half hour to pass through. I will be posting another series on it down the line, and I have photos stashed away that may come in use for future theme days as well.
The visitor scanned a card upon entry, with that scan sending your digital counterpart down into the main part of the exhibition. Then you walked past a series of quotations about light or journeys, such as this one by Tesla.
The shimmering deep colours change regularly, giving what will one day be typical infrastructure a richly moody sensibility.
After passage through this corridor, there were a couple of entrances- each ends up taking you to opposite sides of the tracks down at the platform level. The design of these pathways differ from each other.
On this occasion, I took the passage to the right, where the lights and music interact with the passage of people.
This pathway leads to a room with a dazzling light show being projected, with geometric shapes flashing on the screen, something like out of a sci-fi movie.
