I was wrong when quoting the dates for the Yonge–Dundas square installation! It’s going down on Wednesday night. I’m not sure if that means it’s available then or not. But, go!
When it was first open to the public on Saturday afternoon I saw a sour-faced woman sit down on one of the concrete benches, examine the square, and say “well this is stupid.”
These people live among us!

The Yonge–Dundas installation was mentioned in the Toronto section of last Saturday's Globe and Mail. It's probably behind a paywall by the time you read it, but a tasty quote from the article says:
Much like the searchlight installation that lent an icon to the
festival last year, the installation will let people play with light on
a grand scale. David Pecaut, Luminato's co-chair, says he sees it as a
kind of home base for the festival this year – and one that intractably
ties itself to the city's landscape.
After much ado, the microphones are I think being installed today. The whole thing will be operational for testing on Thursday night, and officially running as of Friday.
