Now that Community Confluence — the massive piece of art installed on the sides of the Lansdowne Street parkade — is done, a video has been uploaded to YouTube showing how it was put together.
The under-two-minute clip shows local artist Bill Frymire and his team place 90,000 tiles around the building. Because the video was shot in high speed and high def, you can also play it back at a slower speed, if you want it to take longer.
A mesh wrap holds the tiles up, creating a bird's eye view (if the bird is really, really up there) of the confluence of the Thompson Rivers.
The project was part of an overall upgrade to the parkade, which cost around $1.45 million. The art portion of that was $166,000.
