Pattison Onestop and Art for Commuters
David Bouchard - Toronto, Canada
New Media Installation

Yonge & Bloor
A 12-hour long artwork based on TTC data. Custom generative software translates this data, which provides
structure and movement, into an evolving abstract map inspired by notions of flow, ephemerality and transitory
The project’s 12-hour run-time was chosen to coincide with the event schedule and follows a
generative approach to content creation.
The piece is entirely created from software written by the artist. By giving the system some degree
of autonomy, including elements of randomness and a reliance on external data, the work is also a reflection
on notions of artistic control and authorship.
