Kingsway at Clark, 2009

Kingsway Luminaires activates six, 5.4 metre poles that are located in the centre median on Kingsway near Knight Street intersection. Three poles are located one block west of Knight at Clark Street and the other three poles are to the east at Dumfries Street. Each of the six poles will be crowned with illuminated globes that will slowly change colour from dusk to dawn. These white opaque resin globes will be lit from within by full-spectrum LED lights that display a randomly changing array of six colours which will change very slowly over several hours.

Kingsway Luminaires is a permanent public art installation commissioned by the City of Vancouver's Public Art Program as part of Mapping and Marking, artist-initiated projects for Vancouver 2010.
