Shoal | Troika

Troika / Shoal, 2010 / 467 individually rotating elements, Dichroic acrylic,  Custom build electronics, stepper motors and controls / Image via Troika

LOCATION Corus Quay, Toronto, Canada
CURATORIAL PAM (Karen Mills and Justin Ridgeway)
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.
