“The message “EVERYBODY’S GOT A LITTLE LIGHT UNDER THE SUN” appears this spring at the Toronto Sculpture Garden. This message is written upon an LED sign framing a climbing dome above which hovers a mirror ball. The electric sign and the mirror ball’s motor are powered by two different sources situated on the Sculpture Garden’s grounds.

These two power sources are contingent both on the climate’s variations and the activities of the Garden’s visitors: solar panels are installed to capture available sunlight and convert it to electrical energy; alternately, bicycle pedals attached to hidden electrical generators are installed to transform visitors’ muscle power also into electricity.”
