Materials: aluminum
Location: Carleton University O-Train Station
City of Ottawa Art Collection: 2015-0184

The large scale of this artwork and its placement along the length of the platform gives the Carleton O-Train station a sense of place and architectural identity. As the eye passes along its length, the sequence of wheel segments plays on the idea of movement and travel. At night, the design of the red panels – inspired by the OC Transpo logo – acts as a beacon, reflecting the ambient light of passing trains.

locomOtion was commissioned as part of the O-Train Expansion Project in 2013. Architect-turned-artist, Stuart Kinmond has lived in Ottawa since 1984. Kinmond studied at McGill University and at the Ottawa School of Art. He works full-time in paint, digital media and installation art.
