Luminato: Windscape

They look like science, but actually, they're art.

David Pecaut Square
June 8–17, 11 a.m. to 12 a.m.

If you’ve walked by David Pecaut Square during the past week or so, you’ve probably noticed these enormous windsocks. They may appear to be part of some strange weather-related scientific experiment, but in fact, they’re a sculptural installation for Luminato by architects Jack Diamond and Donald Schmitt of Diamond Schmitt Architects, who worked in consultation with artist Mitchell F. Chan. The whole thing is known as “Windscape,” and it’s supposed to evoke “an ever-evolving mechanized ballet” as the socks move and change colour in response to live music. They also perform hourly throughout the day.
