Enchanting Calgary: 1000 Faces Unveils a Symphony of Nature and Art

Artist +AMOR (Alejandro Figueroa) presents 1000 Faces, a breathtaking installation poised to transform Calgary’s cityscape. Suspended on a 40-foot arch, a 12-foot diameter sphere adorned with 1779 plexiglass tiles mirrors the grace of birds and schools of fish. Step beneath to be immersed in a unity of nature and art, a captivating dance of translucent reflections.

Collaborating with Calgary-born composer King Aurorus, the installation’s auditory experience combines digital and natural soundscapes. An augmented reality (AR) layer adds a vibrant dimension, exploring mythological creatures and indigenous culture. +AMOR’s vision extends beyond art; it’s a narrative of community building and healing, fostering connection and dialogue.

The installation is dedicated to all Indigenous children found in unmarked graves throughout Canada and aims to contribute to awareness and reconciliation.

1000 Faces invites Calgarians on a transformative journey, celebrating diversity and the magic of winter. Don’t miss this captivating fusion of art and nature, a testament to the boundless possibilities of creative expression.
