Solar flare

Bringing some warmth to Calgary's cold streets.

In Canada, we’re grudgingly used to braving frigid cold between November and March, but many still end up feeling pretty glum about it, and you might lay blame for that on a lack of sunlight. Calgary-based artists Caitlind R.C. Brown and Wayne Garrett aim to brighten up one downtown Calgary street with their large light installation Solar Flare. It’s an artificial sun activated by passersby walking beneath it, with the LED-lit sculpture keeping the light glowing in the darkest days of winter. Sadly, this is not a replacement for your daily dose of Vitamin D.
