The Luminato festival which celebrates creativity mostly in the form of theatre and music always has a visual art component although this year it was minimal. Brookfield Place (from the last 2 posts) is usually involved in this aspect and this is a section of this year's offering - "Sargasso" by architect Philip Beesley. The title refers to the floating mass of living matter and cast-off material that floats in the centre of the Atlantic ocean and the piece attempts to create the feel of such an environment here. I was a bit underwhelmed - it wasn't as strong as pieces that have been there in the past and I will show you 1 of these tomorrow!
