Watertable is a public artwork commissioned by the City of Toronto to mark the original shoreline of Lake Ontario and the new entrance to historic Fort York. It's a lighting and audio installation that creates the look and sound of moving water: undulating LED lights accompanied by the sound of lake waves respond to current wind conditions at the site. It's just south of Fort York's Garrison Commons. (It has been taken down)
Watertable, the first new media artwork in the City's Public Art Collection, is a new media sculpture that uses the architecture of the Gardiner Expressway to echo the natural condition of the site when it marked the water's edge in the early days of the city's history.
Winners of the 2005 Governor General's Award in Visual and Media Arts, Lisa Steele and Kim Tomczak developed Watertable as part of an International open competition held in 2007.
