A Gigantic Replica Of Earth Is Floating In Toronto Right Now And It's Truly Stunning
You can see it for free on select dates this September.
A new exhibit called Life of Earth opened at the Ontario Science Centre on September 22. The Toronto Earth exhibit, the latest project by Toronto filmmaker Director X, is promoted as a sequel to his stunning project at Nuit Blanche last year. Director X is the mastermind behind Drake's "Hotline Bling" music video, among many others.
The exhibit features a larger-than-life replica of Earth, which will project the evolution of our plant from the time of Pangea to the present day. It will be on display at the Science Centre until January 5, 2020. The piece is a follow-up to Death of the Sun, a breathtaking piece that drew massive crowds in 2016.
Torontonians will be able to see Life Of The Earth for free on September 28 and 29 as part of the centre's 50th Birthday Community Weekend. The event, which offers free general admission, will allow patrons to explore exhibitions, presentations, demonstrations, and hands-on activities.
The buzzworthy exhibition will also be part of Toronto's Nuit Blanche event this October. It will be on display from 7 a.m. to 7 p.m. on October 5. According to the OSC website, the piece is a collaboration between the Ontario Science Centre and the City of Toronto.
The Toronto Raptors' 25th anniversary willat Nuit Blanche this year. "Peace to the Past, Reach for the Future" will honour the team's championship victory in a very big way.
Producer Bryan Espiritu and Sculptor Esmaa Mohamoud are creating an 18-foot sculpture for the piece, "imagining their future and celebrating the diverse communities that support them," according to the description.
