JAMES CARPENTER’S LIGHT INSTALLATION, YORK STREET, SOUTHCORE FINANCIAL CENTRE

carpenter1Above YORK STREET, from TORONTO’s Southcore Financial Centre to Union Station, a corrugated glass bridge has become a public art landmark.  Created by the acclaimed New York light artist, JAMES CARPENTER, “Lake Light Threshold” consists of illuminated prismatic sheets of glass which change colour.  Pedestrians, crossing from office buildings to the railway station, become animated components, clearly visible to passing automobile and airplane traffic.
