The Kids Photograph Fall Colours I: Ai Weiwei’s Forever Bicycles, and Nuit Blanche

Kids Photograph Fall Colours I Ai Wei Weis Forever Bicycles and Nuit Blanche

This month, I am asking the kids to use their cameras to photograph fall colours. One thing I’ve been reminding them is that “we can’t forget the night.” So, last night, when we took them to Scotiabank Nuit Blanche, a sweet, sweet ineractive arts festival that ran in downtown Toronto from dusk til dawn, they brought their cameras along. The photography, on their part, mostly happened at the beginning of the evening, before they went crazy for the paper hats, the food trucks, a video of mars, and a garbage-can sculpture of Notre Dame.

Here are their own photographs of Ai Weiwei’s Forever Bicycles, 2013 and some of the fantastic installations surrounding that exhibit.
