About this Event

This Nuit Blanche, MaRS opens its doors to show how entrepreneurs are transforming the world for the better, using innovation to combat today’s mounting threats to our environment.

Featuring an immersive, multimedia experience set in the soaring, cathedral-like MaRS atrium, Transformation includes 3D projections, super-sized sculptures, interactive light displays and informative videos. It also includes special contributions by Canadian icons Margaret Atwood and Daniel Lanois, who composed a new soundscape for the event.

Visitors will wade through a projection-mapped, plastic-clogged river, dodging massive, inflatable sculptures, prompting them to re-examine their own behaviours around single-use-plastics. They’ll gaze up at an enormous, glowing orange orb—a reminder of the catastrophic effects of earth’s rising temperatures—before arranging their own beautifully-lit pathway as they walk through a series of touch-sensitive, LED Nanoleaf light panels.
