Description

Perched on the canopy above the front doors, Community Channel is a collection of silhouettes that, for the artist, represent the diversity of the community that converges at The Bronson Centre. Artist Andrew O’Malley programmed light-emitting diodes (LEDs) within each figure to radiate colour schemes that change across the seasons and over the course of each day. Through this use of light, O’Malley explores and animates notions of individuality and community.

Trained as an engineer, Andrew O’Malley investigates the relationship between art and technology by designing experiences and situations.

Community Channel was commissioned through the City of Ottawa in partnership with The Bronson Centre and Grey Sisters of the Immaculate Conception, as part of the renewal of Bronson Avenue.
