How I see the world

Travel Theme: Shine


The “Illuminated Crowd” is a public sculpture outside  a bank in Montreal, near Magill University.

“A crowd has gathered, facing the light, an illumination brought about by fire, an event, an ideology — or an ideal. The strong light casts shadows, and as the light moves toward the back and diminishes, the mood degenerates; rowdiness, disorder and violence occur, showing the fragile nature of man. Illumination, hope, involvement, hilarity, irritation, fear, illness, violence, murder and death — the flow of man’s emotion through space”

  2. A very strange sculpture indeed, and quite scary too.
