Motion in Air (Ma)
Site: Toronto, ON

Photographer: Steven M. Dolson
An impressive addition to the public art landscape of Toronto, Motion in Air (Ma) is a 120-meter-long mural installed on the façade of the Mirabella Condos.
Artist Jennifer Macklem took inspiration from the ecology of nearby Lake Ontario, as well as the concept of environmental optimism, to create a vibrantly coloured artwork that honors nature through images of dragonflies, diatoms and botanical elements.
The mural is composed of 600 custom sublimated powder-coated graphic ALTO™ panels, a product that compliments the environmental mission of the mural due to the use of sustainable and recyclable aluminum.
