Toronto-based contemporary artist Krista Kim will launch her massive sound and light installation, Continuum, at Fort York National Historic site this weekend. The exhibit is curated by famous DJ Steve Aoki, with music composed by Smashing Pumpkins guitarist Jeff Schroeder. The Toronto showing marks the first exciting stop of a global tour.
Measuring 120 meters along and 4 meters high, the exhibit is said to be “the largest sound and light installation in history.” Using immersive healing sound frequencies, guests are encouraged to experience the piece as a kind of meditation, and consider how art and technology play a role in our mental health.
“In a symbolic act of healing and rebirth, the work will be installed at Fort York National Historic Site, transforming it from a military fortification implicated in colonial history into a light of hope for the future,” Kim shared in a post on her Instagram feed.
Continuum will be running for three days only, on Saturday, October 2 and Sunday, October 3 from 12 p.m./noon to 10 p.m., and on Monday, October 4 from 5 a.m. to 12 p.m./noon.
