London-based design studio Troika created this multimedia installation called Shoal that has been set up in the Corus building located at Toronto’s Waterfront. This public artwork consists of hundreds of fish-like objects hanging from the ceiling and changing colors with their movement.

From Troika:

Troika’s public artwork Shoal combines sculpture with architecture and technology. Spanning across a 50 meter long corridor, 467 fish-like objects wrapped in iridescent colors and suspended from the ceiling rotate rhythmically around their own axis to display the movements and interdependency typical to school of fish.

The ceiling architecture is set in motion and appears liquified changing the spatial experience of the corridor while opening up the surrounding architecture infinitely towards Lake Ontario.
