PROJECT Shoal
LOCATION Corus Quay, Toronto, Canada
DESIGN and CONSTRUCTION Troika
CURATORIAL PAM (Karen Mills and Justin Ridgeway)
CLIENT TEDCO
YEAR 2010

Troika’s latest kinetic installation activates the interior ceiling of a 50m corridor in Corus’ new Toronto building. 467 fish-shaped elements are suspended from the ceiling in a constantly moving array that resembles a school of fish. Evocative of the marine life in the nearby lake, the iridescent dichroic acrylic used to coat the elements reflects a spectrum of colours as they rotate.

The installation creates a stunning effect over a large area with simplicity and elegance.
