A controversial Mount Dennis $250,000 art project is finished and was unveiled last night.
“Nyctophilia” is a collection of streetlamps with bulbs of different colours—and in the daytime at least, it’s not pretty. Mike Sullivan, our MP, was a bit indirect in his criticism, but his comment “wherearethetrees” sums up, I’m sure, the critics who think that this art is too urban in an already urban place.
But then look at this, a picture from the new proprietor of the Super Coffee shop in Mount Dennis
Or this one from TorontoSavvy
That’s not bad, not bad at all!
Maybe I’m stretching a bit here, but I think this art is ugly and urban and hides its potential—only to transform overnight into something beautiful and a little startling.
I think it fits right in in Weston—Mount Dennis.
