Pond-full of Rubber Duckies, Saturday, October 4 from 6:52 p.m.
TORONTO, Oct. 1 /CNW/ - Rubber Duckie, you're the one to watch this year
as Ryerson University reprises its Light Up the Night multi-venue exhibition
in Scotiabank Nuit Blanche. Beginning at 6:52 p.m. Saturday, October 4 and
running all night Sitting Ducks is the Ryerson School of Interior Design's
answer to last year's wildly popular Devonian Pond installation: Ode to the
A tribute to the live ducks that frequent Lake Devo, as it is called on
campus, Sitting Ducks is a one-night only event that sees hundreds of yellow
duckies bedazzled with light, poking through the haze and playfully moving
throughout the pond. Described as a supernatural urban experience, the
interactive exhibit offers the chance to "hunt" in a special duck blind.
Sitting Ducks can be found in Zone A, at the corner of Victoria St. and Gould
Sculptural Installations & Dislocation
Marvel at the beauty of Polly and Dancing Queen, two large-scale
sculptural installations that come alive under water treatments and strobe
lighting. Placed on either side of the entrance of Ryerson's Heaslip House,
these two ambassadors welcome visitors in to the indoor exhibitions, such as
Dislocation, where fashion comes alive, interacting with fashionistas and
video imagery to create a visual narrative. Presented by Ryerson Theatre
School and the School of Fashion, three separate collections will be exhibited
sequentially throughout the evening. Polly, Dancing Queen and Dislocation are
located in Zone A at 297 Victoria St.
Zero C is an electronic call to transform society from consumption to
sustainability. Equipped with images, video, audio and text, the installation
allows visitors to question their environment and their own interactions
within it - ultimately leading to the metaphorical point of change, Zero C.
Presented by the School of Radio and Television Arts, Zero C is located in
Zone A next to the Rogers Communications Centre (80 Gould St.).
