Nyctophilia artists strike again.

Another community has been left scratching their collective heads after artistic duo, Christian Giroux and Daniel Young have installed another of their creations near St Clair and Bathurst. No doubt there will be some who like it but more likely, most won’t and members of the public who object will be made to feel as if they have no artistic soul (sound familiar?). How this thing ever got approved is beyond me but then, nobody asked me; nor should they. Unfortunately, few in the community where it has been unceremoniously plonked (Ward 21) are likely to have been asked either.

The above photo is deceptive as the scale of the thing isn’t apparent until you notice the relative size of the stop signs. A better impression of its true size can be gleaned from the artists’ site here.

Unlike Nyctophilia, the money for this didn’t come from Section 37 funds. The source for Three Points is the City’s Public Art Program (nice acronym!). Read more in the Star.

    Well, at least it’ll make some nice shade or shelter from the rain……not. 😉
