a limited Nuit Blanche

Approaching Weiwei's sculpture of Forever bicycles, welded into patterns - pushing through Nathan Phillips Square jam-packed with thousands of revellers
So delicate and beautiful, yet massive, set against City Hall. I ran into a neighbour who said, "It's just a pile of bicycles." And remembered how sour his view of life is, and smiled and moved on. Well yes it is just a pile of bicycles, and Van Gogh's "Sunflowers" is just some yellow paint on canvas.
 You could walk through and spin the wheels.
On the way home, we encountered this outside an apartment building on Dundas - a kind of illuminated Rubik's cube that people were moving around.
