Scotiabank Nuit Blanche 2014: Kalos Eidos

 

Kalos Eidos (KE) was inspired by the hypnotizing visual evolution of a kaleidoscope and its dependence on human interaction. The objective of which was to create a conversation between sight and touch within a site specific installation hosted at the corner of Dufferin and Bloor.

 

KE was a designated Scotiabank Nuit Blanche Independent Project and was designed to accommodate collaboration. Through the artistic direction of Kate Hogg and Gabriella Borg, the installation featured the work of over 40 independent artists.
