Vectorial Elevation

Starting at dusk on February 4, 2010, 20 robotic searchlights created a quiet canopy of light in the night sky above and on the surface of English Bay with designs created by people around the world and delivered over the Internet. Called Vectorial Elevation, it is the first time the internationally celebrated work of art displayed in Canada and over a body of water.

The 10,000-watt lights moved and created patterns silently from locations in Vanier Park and Sunset Beach that cover an area of 100,000 sq. m and is visible within 15 km of the city's downtown core, stretching to other sites of Olympic venues, like Richmond and Cypress Mountain.

The installation of this display is co-commissioned by the City of Vancouver's Olympic and Paralympic Public Art Program and Vancouver 2010 Cultural Olympiad, Bell, and the Province of Quebec. The display, considered one of the world's largest interactive artworks, is lead by Canadian artist Rafael Lozano-Hemmer.
