On Saturday, a few of us went to the Scotiabank Nuit Blanche event. This event displays all sorts of different art all around downtown for the WHOLE night. The event starts at 7PM and ends at sunrise. The downtown core was FILLED with people... like Ottawa's Canada Day. Some streets were blocked off and some dumb cars dared to drive downtown. Though, I tried to yell at those drivers who had their windows down to tell them that there was no point of waiting and to just turn around. There was lots of different sorts of art I saw, like chess being played with sound effects/music in the background in an auditorium, random couples dancing by feeling the music on Dundas square, a firefly-like light display, film projections... but my favourite was the overhead images/graphics displayed on screens that were upside-down, right-side up, sideways... any which way you would have to position your body to view them in the right orientation. They had music playing to this too. This display was at the Nathan Phillips Square. I would highly recommend you explore some new art and try this event if you ever happened to be in the neighbourhood. It was fun to try...though the night got pretty cold. We were lucky enough to catch the last subway going home.
