Traveling downstream to create a large-scale dynamic lighting installation, the spheres will float into the lagoon, joining a week-long spectacular light matrix that responds in color, motion and light to environmental data collected from the Bow River.
Sources and the River of Light is a narrative lighting installation exploring the idiosyncratic nature of the Bow River in response to the subject of water. Vital information about the environment and the Bow’s make-up, flow and usage is communicated through the light patterns of the spheres, while people take a moment to pause and reflect on the Bow and the installation’s beauty created through light.
The artist of this installation is U.K-based Creatmosphere, founded by artist Laurent Louder. They are using geographic, geological and environmental observation, public participation and technology to achieve a spectacular and memorable experience on the Bow River."

A very unique installation, and a lot of fun to attend with thousands of other onlookers participating.
