Video: Mark Fast’s “The Ascension of Beauty”

Though the installation has been in place since Friday, last night was the official opening party for Mark Fast‘s “The Ascension of Beauty” piece for Toronto’s Luminato arts festival. Fast uses Brookfield Place as a giant knitting machine, looping white ropes through the soaring Allen Lambert Galleria, culminating in a tiered knit dress inspired by the rose (his sponsor Lancôme’s symbol). We sent our video cameras to capture the installation and to talk to Fast about the experience.

You can see “The Ascension of Beauty” at Brookfield Place until June 20.
