Introducing #WaterfallYSC

A new permanent art installation has splashed down at Yonge + St. Clair.

Introducing #WaterfallYSC, a 30-foot optical illusion installed on the side of a building at 1408 Yonge Street. Commissioned by the Yonge + St. Clair BIA and designed by Studio F Minus – the same artists who created the Tunnel of Glam – the installation creates a stunning visual effect that appears to erode the adjacent wall using polished stainless steel mirrors.


Artists Studio F Minus describe the installation this way:

WATERFALL plays with existing architecture to create an experience to discover, explore and share.  The scene created is a unique and unexpected moment in which nature is celebrated in the heart of the city.   The wall mounted mirror finish stainless steel reflect the sky eroding the brick facade and allowing colorful bands to spill out of its base. WATERFALL serves as a visual reminder that all barriers, even those that appear the most unyielding, are in fact impermanent, and that persistent forces can open new pathways resulting in some-thing unexpected and beautiful.


#WaterfallYSC was partially funded through the City of Toronto’s Outdoor Mural & Street Art Program.

Plan your trip to #WaterfallYSC today at 1408 Yonge Street, Toronto.
