This massive mirrorball was created by Canadian artist Michel De Broin as a site-specific installation for the Luminato Festival in Toronto. Entitled One Thousand Speculations, the awesome disco ball measures over 25 feet in diameter. Each night of the festival the ball is hoisted 80 feet into the air, spotlit and spun, transforming the grounds of the festival into a wondrous starry landscape.
“Initially inspired by a photograph which appeared in the Los Angeles Times in 1942, “The Battle of Los Angeles”, showing anti-aircraft searchlights concentrating on Unidentified Flying Objects, the largest mirror ball ever made will be suspended from a construction crane lit by many beams of light. The one thousand mirrors will reflect the light to render and re-create the starry sky for Toronto’s citizens during Luminato festival.”
