“Life of Earth… Death of Sun…”
The huge installation reflects our life on the planet and the role of humans on the environment. The present, past and future of the planet Earth as it is seen from the space delivered to us by acclaimed Canadian music video creator and artist Director X. The exhibition encourages the discussions about current issues of life and human condition. “Death of Sun” is a take on the human mortality and the place of humans in the universe through the existence of our star.
IMAX – “Volcanoes: The Fires of Creation”
As an introduction to the screening of the new film “Volcanoes: The Fires of Creation” the Toronto-based filmmaker Michael Dalton-Smith gives the insight to what it is like to get close to the active volcanoes… The movie takes us on the round-the-world tour to visit major active volcanoes and explore the various volcanic sites. The film portraits the photographer and explorer Peter Carsten, the dangers and excitement of his work in Indonesia at the edge of an active volcano. The film is filled with rare and fascinating scenes of volcanic landscapes, interesting for the whole family no matter the ages!
Fun for all! At Ontario Science Centre…
…And as always after exploring all the new and exciting, watching the film and having a quick snack, we need to get active and have some fun at some of our favorite spots – we race the blocks to explore the various surfaces, we compete in rowing and create some fun items for coming Halloween!
