Noot blanch

October 1 was the day, or should I say nite, of Nuit Blanche, an all nite art party.
In previous years, I have not been super impressed by a bunch of video presentations, but at this event, I did find some more interesting items.

At the Eaton Centre was the Papparazzi bots, which would follow around people on the stage.

While just up the street a beach scene with flame throwing valves kept the rain at bay. This was called the Heart Machine.

City Hall had some stupid thing where you could strap yourself to a set of wings and fly across the square. That did not interest me at all, but I did love the lazer beams that were shooting around the square.

Another location had lights, smoke and sirens announcing that something was going to happen...soon!

My favourite was the reproduction of a 1980 Wimbledon game between Björn Borg and John McEnroe, which was done by Tibi Tibi Neuspiel and Geoffrey Pugen. This was such a cool concept, and must have been extremely hard to do, reproducing every action of the game.

A visit to the Bell Tiff Lightbox found a concert created by video game music and chiptunes.

Zooming down the streets we saw a bunch of clowns,

a huge balloon display,

and a band performing on the street.

This year the Renegade Festival once again had the Morpheous Bondage Extravaganza, with women in various stages of bondage activities. Always a fun way to spend the evening!
