Aug. 15-21 2010, Calgary featured an art installation/event using contemporary lighting installation by renowned London artist Laurent Louyer (Creatmosphere). Color-coded daylight spheres dotted around Prince's Island, downtown Calgary. These spheres represent the Bow River's four water sources: rainwater, groundwater, glacier, and snowmelt. The installation makes use of light, motion and colour to communicate information about the river, flow, quality, water cycle and demand.
Creatmosphere feeds data to each of the individually-addressed spheres, and in turn different light
patterns are created, depending on the data they are receiving.

Aug 21, 2010 at 9:00PM (River of Light event), 500 spheres will supposedly be released into the river and were to end up down the Prince's Island lagoon. So today as part of our weekend biking routine, we loaded our bikes in the morning and headed towards downtown. We took an early supper at Globefish, had our fav sushi and then headed back downtown and hangout for the main event.

By 8:30PM, crowd have started gathering at the Prince's Island bridge right where the Data Spheres art installation was. It was already 11PM when the first two spheres came into the lagoon. Yes, you read that right. Two! Fifteen minutes later,  another group of three. Disappointed at the pace, we decided to head back home. On our way out of downtown, we could not help but notice some people carrying some of these spheres. Well, there you go! No wonder, only few ended up to their supposedly final destination!
