Finally...if you want to become a part of the celebrations you can interact on your computer from far away creating your personal pattern of lights. Click on Vectorial Vancouver and Participate, then watch live the show of lights created by you.
"Vectorial Elevation is an interactive artwork that allows participants to transform the sky over Vancouver, Canada. Using a three-dimensional interface, this web site lets you design huge light sculptures by directing 20 robotic searchlights located around English Bay. A web page is made for each participant with photos of their design from four cameras located around the city".
I invite you try it... so easy and fun! and let me know, friends around the world, if it was you who changed the Vancouver sky tonight.

Having the Olympics in Vancouver is so exciting! Makes me wish I still lived there :) I'm envious. I will be watching from Toronto now but I hope you enjoy every minute of the Olympic spirit that will be filling your beautiful city in the coming weeks. Soak it up! All of Canada is with you in our hearts!
