As the world begins to emerge out of a global pandemic that has disrupted and transformed our everyday lives, mental health and well-being are now recognized as crucial self-care practices for everyone.
Continuum hopes to bring healing and wellness to the community. In a symbolic act of rebirth, the art installation will transform Fort York from a military fortification implicated in colonial history into lighting the way for a brighter future.
Continuum features a free-standing video wall measuring 100 feet long, along the original lakeshore lines of Lake Ontario. Paired with original music composed by Smashing Pumpkins guitarist Jeff Schroeder, and immersive healing sound frequencies. This is the largest sound and light installation to ever be on display at Fort York.
Continuum, held at Fort York from October 2 to 4, is now available for viewing online on Toronto History Museums’ YouTube channel.
