Multimedia artwork removed temporarily from under the Gardiner
Watertable, the City of Toronto’s first multimedia art commission, has been taken down during the current work to repair the Gardiner Expressway west of Bathurst Street. The artwork is expected to be remounted this fall.

Launched in October 2009, Watertable creates the look of shimmering water on the underside of the Gardiner Expressway. The artwork, which is a massive LED light installation more than 500 square metres in size, responds to prevailing wind conditions.

Watertable is located on the underside of the Gardiner Expressway on the north side of Fort York Boulevard west of Bathurst Street and adjacent to the new pedestrian entrance at Fort York.
