Eaton Centre premieres public art display "Slipstream" at Nuit Blanche

An artist's rendition of the Slipstream, which will premier at the Eaton Centre during Nuit Blanche

TORONTO, Ont. – The Toronto Eaton Centre’s newest public art display, Slipstream, had its premiere during the all-night art festival Nuit Blanche.

The $2.5-million LED light installation was designed by United Visual Artists and is comprised of 70 prisms suspended along the TEC gallery.

The display took 3,000 hours to install.

Creators say the idea of Slipstream is to capture the dynamic notion of flight by suggesting a connection to the sky and natural light above.

The display was revealed at a reception October 1 at 7:30 p.m.

Nuit Blanche ran from Saturday at 6:59 p.m. to sunrise on Sunday.
