Luminato Search Lights

Forgive the grain, this was shot at ISO1000. Remember those baloons I posted a little while back form the Luminato Arts and Creativity Festival? Here is another photo from that festival looking down the walkway along Toronto's waterfront at Harbourfront Centre. For the festival 20 huge searchlights were set up along the waters edge and pointed back into the toronto skyline. Each lamp was individually controlled by the operator's heartbeat. As a visitor you go up and hold two handles that sense your pulse which is translated into light movements and pulses of intensity in the sky. It was a pretty amazing 2 weeks while they were down there and are perhaps one of the most popular interactive public installations of that nature I've ever seen. It was very cool. Here's a handheld shot from one saturday night.

That sounds so cool, SL. I've never heard of that before.
Iain Myrans: Me neither! It was wonderful! Toronto's been doing some really neat and innovative things like this recently and it makes me very happy : )
