Color Sphere breaks the corner space of 115 Gold Ave SW and plays to the location's right angles by introducing a large round form reminiscent of a planet whose core will be filled with painterly and playfully rendered objects. These objects, which can be interpreted as artifacts, microscopic specimens of ocean life or magnified grains of sand, take on their own characters, personalities and interconnected dialogue.
