Photo Of The Week: Paradox Of Parallax

"PARALLAX", Light Installation.
Idea Tank Design Collective – Nuit Blanche, 2013. Toronto.

Composed of horizontally stacked tubes of different sizes, PARALLAX uses light to articulate movement. The tubes are tightly packed apertures, a dot screen controlling the amount of light the viewer can see based on their location. This perceptual parallax effect depends on the movement of the observer. As the viewer walks down the length of the float, the diameter of the tubes shifts, creating two different pixelated patterns inspired by natural shapes. These patterns are only notional when the observer is close to the float, but they resolve into a cohesive image when viewed from a distance. In this way, PARALLAX is activated by user interaction.

"The early years of education are designed to encourage and support the development of students' growth and to build a foundation for success,"

states the Seneca Hill Public School's website (you'll be hearing more about Seneca Hill once we get into listing the top elementary schools in the city).
