The Winnipeg Arts Council invited artist-led teams to submit a proposal for the creation of a feature lighting art installation around the duck pond in Kildonan Park in Winnipeg, MB. Nadi worked alongside Takashi Iwasaki, a prolific Winnipeg artist, to create an immersive and dreamy lighting experience for park goers and ice skaters in the wintertime. Enchanted by the bokeh effect—an aesthetic quality where a camera lens blurs points of colour and light to produce a polychromatic image—we designed three sculptural light fixtures to provide the same effect around the duck pond.
