El próximo sábado 2 de octubre, desde el atardecer hasta el amanecer, la torre CN en Toronto será lienzo de la obra E-TOWER. Una instalación interactiva que en el marco de la Scotiabank Nuit Blanche 2010 invita a los participantes para a través de su teléfono movil, enviar un mensaje y de esta forma interactuar con la “energía/luminosidad” en la superficie de la Torre. A través de esta participación la envolvente luminiscente que rodea a la estructura aumentará en relación a la cantidad de los mensajes recibidos.

Con ello el proyecto E-TOWER explora nuevos conceptos de arte público relacionados al espacio público que permite la participación de multitudes con el propósito de involucrarlos a formar un diálogo que cruza entre las capas físicas e intangibles que puede tener una ciudad, expresadas a través de una escala arquitectónica que maximiza y es reflejo de la visibilidad de la energía colectiva de la ciudad.

On October 2, 2010, from sunset to sunrise, E-TOWER invites the participants of Scotiabank Nuit Blanche 2010 to increase the “energy” of Toronto’s CN Tower. Every text you send adds a bit of energy to the tower’s lights.

E-TOWER explores new concepts of public art and public space by allowing large groups of people to enter into a dialogue that crosses over and between the physical and digital layers of the city – a dialogue that is expressed on an architectural scale – maximizing the visibility of the city’s collective energy.

E-TOWER is about creating public art that depends on public participation by enabling cooperative, collaborative expression, and reflecting that energy back to the community,” said Dave Colangelo, co-creator.

On the night of the event, the CN Tower lighting will begin to pulse slowly, with a faint blue light circling the observation deck. As participants send “energy” to the Tower, the lighting effects will become faster and brighter. Colours will change and special animations will mark rising energy levels, reflecting the city’s energy.

“This installation encourages thousands of people to contribute to the creation of public art and experience the sum of their collective actions on a massive scale,” said Patricio Davila, co-creator.

Toronto based artists and academics Dave Colangelo and Patricio Davila, co-creators of E-TOWER, are interested in exploring the possibilities of light, architecture and data visualization in public space. The pair met while pursuing PhD studies in Toronto and are currently working on a number of collaborative and interdisciplinary art and design projects. The project has benefitted from the generous support of CN Tower and Rogers Communications.

CN Tower – Towering Innovation A national icon, engineering wonder and Toronto must see, the CN Tower is a leading edge facility notably in exploring the possibilities of light and architecture. Using 1,330 energy efficient LED fixtures, the CN Tower lights up the Toronto skyline each night with special lighting throughout the year to recognize charitable events and causes, seasons, special holidays and citywide events. As part of E-Tower at Nuit Blanche, the CN Tower is delighted to have this unique opportunity to bring the Tower to Toronto residents in a special way.
