137 Tecumseth

1994
This installation was first shown in a space at 137 Tecumseth in Toronto that had once been an industrial garage. The slowly shifting grid of light re-creates the effect of the sunlight that shone through the windows, now covered over, of that room in its previous existence. The immaterial light is like a memory of a past time projected onto the present.
