Nuit Blanche on the Blogosphere

2006_10_2nuit.jpg
Torontoist searched the blogosphere and figured out that people were in love with Nuit Blanche. “This is kind of like Halloween for Adults,” Under Sky Blue Sea overheard. We think it might be because he, like so many others, was walking around in the fog installation over by Philosopher’s Walk.
Sarah B. Hood’s verdict is that Fujiko Nakaya’s Fog was one of the two best installations that night. Photographer Ashley Hutcheson also took some eerie photos of the fog.
According to Hood the other big hit of Nuit Blanche was Darren O’Donnell’s “ballroom.” Squiddity and Torontoist agree with this.
Just outside of the ballroom, in Grange Park, Zoilus spends some time at Adrian Blackwell’s ampitheatre/sculpture “Model For A Public Space (Speaker).” Despite the rain and muck, audiences were enraptured by the experimental music played there. Although there were some hitches.
100 stories points out that the Hot Dog vendor outside of the ROM must’ve made a killing. Over at Just Keep Bloggin’ is a rundown of the installations around Yorkville (zone A). Photoblogger Mute got to spend some time on top of the CN Tower.
Finally, one Chris_M, seemed to be too busy checking out girls during Nuit Blanche. “Oh, and also, art chicks are sooooooo cute! Like whoa,” he writes. For once, Chris we wouldn’t know – we were too busy looking at the art.
