London based design and art studio, Troika, have put together a new public piece as part of a permanent installation in Toronto’s Waterfront, commissioned by TEDCO.

The sculpture covers a massive 50 meter corridor and consists of 467 fish like objects hanging on wires from the ceiling. Combining architecture with technology, the fish rotate rhythmically upon their axis to replicate the movement of schools of fish in a fluid-like manner.

Sitting on Lake Ontario, the piece matches it’s surroundings admirably, and creates a very striking visual in an otherwise bland corridor.

What do you think of the installation? Have Troika represented us well in Canada, or is this all style and no substance? Let us know what you think in the comments or on Facebook!

I’m an absolute media junkie, and try and keep on top of all the latest music, films, TV shows and games, which prompted me to found Control The Riot.
