LUMINATO DAILY Tuesday, June 12 2012: Photo Opportunities

THE HUB – Windscape

David Pecaut Square, 55 John Street

David Pecaut Square, re-imagined as Windscape by Diamond Schmitt Architects is a place to meet, play, explore, and share in a spectrum of free programming. At the centre of Windscape is an array of programmable windsocks, a Wind Garden, each more than three metres long with their own fan and LED lights. These nine interactive sculptures swivel and rotate, swell and deflate, all while changing in colour and intensity. The result is a synchronized ballet of wind and colour programmed by choreographers and set to music performed at Luminato every half hour, on the hour, throughout the Festival.
