Weekly Theme "Prime Lens" | Relaunch (Announcement), Help, Feedback.


LuminaTO [luminato.com] is a new festival of art and creativity in Toronto.

The Power Plant is hosting Pulse Front, an interactive light work. Massive searchlights all along the waterfront are controlled by the human pulse. Each searchlight has a station where passers by can grip two posts. The posts transmit information from their bodies to the light. What seems to happen is that when one person's pulse matches with another, the lights swivel and turn towards each other. I'm not sure of that, but they do seem to relate to each other somehow.

can she be real? And then she smiled.

      What a super series. As always great candids. You have the knack of capturing the most natural expressions.

      I really like that Power Plant shot! It glows almost surreally. Also really like the couple from the second in the series, good choice of models.

      Great set! I love the child in "feel the music"....especially in #5......and the last shot. What a cool idea to have the searchlights controlled by the pulse! What fun!
