On 1st October Forsyth & Pollard presented Soon, a monumental new installation in Commerce Court, a public square in Toronto’s financial district. The project was curated by Nicholas Brown for Nuit Blanche and commissioned by the City of Toronto. Featuring an original score by Scanner, Soon was also Forsyth & Pollard’s fifth collaboration with Arup. The team of Raj Patel, Ryan Biziorek, Brian Stacy and Star Davis provided acoustics, sound systems and lighting consulting, design and engineering expertise, to realize the vision for the piece defined by the artists.
Soon is a materialisation, an extended break between before and after. From dusk until dawn an inexplicable encounter unfolds. Something is about to happen.
