Subway Station: King Street – Yellow Line Yonge-University-Spadina
The message “EVERYBODY’S GOT A LITTLE LIGHT UNDER THE SUN” appeared at the Toronto Sculpture Garden in the spring of 2005. This message was written upon an LED sign that framed a climbing dome situated beneath a large mirror ball, in a park. The electric sign and the mirror ball’s motor were powered by two different sources: solar panels captured available sunlight and converted it to electrical energy to power the motor of the mirror ball; alternately, bicycle pedals attached to hidden electrical generators also transformed visitors’ muscle power into electricity to power the LED sign and make the text visible.
