Toronto, ON. A platform for public digital art.
In collaboration with Jennifer Marman and Daniel Borins
LED screen mounted on aluminum clad steel frame.
The Speech Bubble is a tool for dialogue and contemplation. Made of the same material and technology outdoor advertising communications, the increasingly ubiquitous LED screen, it gives voice and cultural expression to a newly developed public space in Toronto’s entertainment district. Cantilevered audaciously from the ground, the speech bubble, as a shape, represents spoken text; yet, the LED screen features video content with abstract imagery.
