Image by Happy Sleepy
Polytopia is a an ongoing project, a sewn textile exploration of form inspired by geometry, evolution, and utopian states.

It took months to make. Each pyramid is about 6 x 6 inches at the base (15cm) and about 7 inches tall (18cm). The whole piece is 12 feet wide and 9 fee tall.

The fabrics are mostly deadstock, mill end rolls, and the excess of various industries manufacturing luggage, cars, airplanes, household goods and interiors. Most of the materials are various upholstery types, vinyl and nylon, lederette, roller blind fabric, and the silver and gold are foiled nylon wallpaper.

Individual pyramids were sewn, and the pyramids to each other were for this installation stapled. It took about 8000 staples.

It will be exhibited as part of Let’s Glow a Happy Sleepy show of paintings, animation, and textile art the Kitchenere Waterloo Art Gallery from 18 January to 4 March 2012.

Polytopia was installed as the coral component of The Reef, upART Contemporary Art Fair, 27 – 30 October 2011, Toronto.

The Canadian (Horseshoe) Falls as seen from the Skylon Tower. You might notice that the middle of the falls are not illuminated. This is because the mist is so intense that the light cannot get through. There is no light aimed at that part because it would just create a blinding reflection.

The illumination lights have operated continuously since their inception in the late 1800’s till now. Throughout the years there have been only several interruptions. During periods of WWI & WWII the illumination lights were not turned on. The other interruption occurred in January 1938, when a major ice jam shut down the Ontario Power Company Generating Station at the base of the gorge. The lights remained off until the power station resumed operations.

Today illumination of the Falls of Niagara occurs every night throughout the year. This illumination project continues to be administered and funded by a five member International Board known as the Niagara Falls Illumination Board. Board members currently consist of representatives from the City of Niagara Falls Ontario, the City of Niagara Falls New York, the Niagara Frontier State Park Authority of New York, Ontario Power Generation (Ontario Hydro) and the Niagara Parks Commission.

In this image you can clearly see the light station in the lower center of the frame. On humid days or when the mist is blowing correctly you can easily see the beams of light as they travel across the river. As part of a 1997 upgrade, the board began replacing old illumination lights with a new 21 light system that will allow 60 – 70 percent more illumination. At a cost of 0,000, the first ten lights were replaced during that year. The new lights use only 4,000 watts – low voltage illumination lights generate an enormous 8.2 billion candlepower. Each bulb is rated at 1,100 hours or one season and cost approximately ,400 each to replace.

The lamp bulbs are supplied by OSRAM GmbH of Germany, one of the world’s leading lamp manufacturers. OSRAM produces state-of-the-art lighting solutions that light up people’s lives all over the world. The new lamps produce twice as much light as the previous lighting installations and consume 10 per cent less power. Since 1997, the rest of the old lights have been replaced as well.

This website has a great explanation of the lighting process:

When you visit the Falls, be sure to check them out at night, preferably from a higher vantage point like the Skylon Tower or your hotel.
