I got these lights at Radical Illumination 2006 in Toronto. This was a very interesting social experiment that I just ran into online and decided to check out. About two hundred people showed up (from ravers to photogs, passer bys to uni students) and were handed these small ‘Throwies’. Everybody was then led over to the middle of the intersection where they blocked off a streetcar and started throwing these on it. Right about when the ‘party’ was broken up by 4-5 cop cars. I wish I had captured the moment when 100s of these tiny lights were raining on the streetcar (need new and better equipment)
I couldn’t help myself but make different alphabets of these throwies. And which better word to spell than L-O-V-E. right?
