Inverted Lake, Toronto, Canada

Intended to suggest submergence, the installation consists of tens of thousands of clear polycarbonate panels held by a cable net stretched over a public plaza in Toronto, Canada. The panels sway in the wind but return to a horizontal position, mimicking the waves and reflectivity of Lake Ontario which covered the site until humans extended the shoreline. Small beams of sunlight bouncing off of the moving panels permeate the plaza with an aqueous light, a memory of the lake that was once there. Commissioned by the Daniels Corporation, the project was completed in 2021.
