Media Advisory/Photo-Op - What weighs 6 metric tons, measures 560 cubic meters, yet uses only 10 amps, the same amperage it takes to power a blow dryer? What is 91 meters and ebbs and flows like a meandering river, but has no water?



    TORONTO, March 2 /CNW/ -

    WHAT:

    Two new permanent art works by renowned artists David Rokeby and Stacy
    Levy at the Ontario Science Centre. Part of the Science Centre's Project
    Art initiative that brings art and science together to further foster a
    culture of innovation. Commissioned as a result of an international
    juried art competition, these works have set a precedent for the fusion
    of art and science at the Science Centre.

    CLOUD by David Rokeby is a mesmerizing shape shifter that emulates the
    molecules of matter - solid, liquid and gas that is in constant motion,
    and hangs permanently in the Great Hall.

    LOTIC MEANDER by Stacy Levy is representation of a river and gives the
    visitor quiet contemplation, from their busy day. A 91 meter (300 foot)
    path of polished stone that illustrates the beauty of water currents and
    movement, located permanently outside of the Great Hall.
