PULSE TOPOLOGY is the Canadian premiere of a stunning interactive light and sound installation by Mexican-Canadian media artist, Rafael Lozano-Hemmer (running October 2 to 31), presented through a collaboration between The Bentway and neighbouring Exhibition Place. Lozano-Hemmer’s installation has taken over a massive, enclosed storage chamber nestled beneath the Gardiner Expressway; 3,000 lights are suspended from the interior of the space and, using touchless biometric technology, react in real-time to the pulse of visitors’ heartbeats. The artwork changes and evolves with every visit, offering a unique sensory experience.
CAMH has partnered with The Bentway to nominate 7 Heart of the City Champions. On October 1st, these extraordinary health providers from across CAMH were invited to be the first heartbeats through the installation. We congratulate Sandria Allen, Javed Alloo, Denise Canso, Karleigh Darnay, Donna Kim, Diane Longboat, and Lee Steel on being recognized as Heart of the City Champions.
