Canopy is the latest installation work form United Visual Artists commissioned by Cadillac Fairview, Lanterra Developments & Maple Leaf Sports, inspired by the experience of walking through the dappled light of a forest, it is a 90-metre long light sculpture spanning the front facade of the building, using mass production and precise fabrication to evoke and reflect nature. Thousands of identical modules, their form abstracted from the geometry of leaves, are organised in a non-repeating growth pattern.

During the day, apertures in the modules filter natural light to the street below. After dusk, particles of artificial light are born, navigate through the grid and die, their survival determined by regions of energy sweeping across the structure. The result simultaneously recalls the activity of cells within a leaf, leaves in a forest canopy, or a city seen from the air.
