Toronto, ON (February 11, 2020)- The Trinity Bellwoods on Dundas BIA presents a new winter initiative to drive community engagement and visitors to the hip stretch of Dundas St. West, also known as the Trinity Bellwoods on Dundas BIA.
Western Lights: ISOCHRONAL is an artistic showcase by artist Fezz Stenton created through 3D mapping and animation techniques. Stenton will transform the 116 foot-long wall at 809 Dundas Street West, bringing its features to life with textures of Ice, Molten Heat, Lush Greenery and Crystal Structures. Through a process of exploration and discovery, generates the imagery and textures that are then mapped to the architectural details of the building. The 8 minute performance will be accompanied by a score and sound design by Toronto Artist and Musician Graham Bertie.

The new initiative was created to help activate the Dundas St. West neighbourhood (Bathurst St. to Grace St.) through lighting and projection to digitally engage building facades during the long winter months. It is a first of its kind for The Trinity Bellwoods On Dundas BIA.

“Our goal was to create an event that is not only enticing enough to bring the immediate community together during winter, but also give visitors from different communities an opportunity to explore the unique businesses which are part of The Trinity Bellwoods on Dundas BIA.” said Melissa De Luca, Co-Chair.

artistic statement about the work

ISOCHRONAL [ ahy-sok-ruh-nl ] adjective 1. equal in length of time 2. occurring at equal intervals of time

Our world has a tempo and rhythm that drives life and decay, an endless cycle that pushes life forward to make way for new growth. This work takes a closer look at the beauty found when we see our world change and adapt within its own isochronal cycle. Seasons, cycles and patterns fuel the planet, and the way it moves and breathes. Isochronal is a projection mapped performance that invites the viewer to look closer at the natural world to gain a greater appreciation for its intricacies.

About The Artist: Fezz Stenton


Stenton’s work focuses on exploring the microscopic details of materials, using 3D rendering techniques he emulates the reflective and refractive qualities of ice, glass, stone and crystal. Through the simulation of naturally occurring factors in of real world optics and physics, he creates a generative system that is explored through iteration and experimentation.

After moving to Toronto in 2013, Stenton started his career in real-time visuals, lighting and projection mapping for events like the Foundry festival where he developed his craft with Artifact Creative setting a new bar for installation design at music events in Toronto.

Stenton has created visuals for artists such as Juan Atkins, Four Tet and Nina Kraviz and Toronto’s Electric Island festival.

In 2015, Stenton joined Occupy VR as partner and Creative Director and became a key part of Occupied’s growth as they pushed the boundaries of what immersive VR and 360 ̊ video can do, leading to clients like Vice, Samsung and Lincoln.
At Nuit Blanche 2019, Stenton created a large scale projected river inside of the Mars Discovery District atrium. Together with his team at Occupied VR with Music from Daniel Lanois and Poetry from Margret Atwood. The exhibit Transformation served as a rallying cry to address the destruction of our ecosystems caused by single use plastics.

Book details,

THE Road to Marylake, by Kelly Rachelle Mathews Arcadia Publishing, Oct. 23, 2017 – History – 256 pages

In 1910, Sir Henry Mill Pellatt, one of Edwardian Canada’s wealthiest men, started building his famed Casa Loma in Toronto. At the same time, he also started work on his country farm and estate in King Township called Lake Marie, named after his first wife, Lady Mary. Created as a place of respite for Pellatt, his wife and their many friends, the property later was developed into an agricultural farm school by a group of Basilian leaders. And in 1942, the Augustinians established a Monastery and Retreat Centre called Marylake on the land they continue to steward today. Local author Kelly Mathews presents this fascinating story for the first time.
