Light from Within
, the artwork for Eglinton station, is inspired by the prismatic and reflective qualities of minerals, crystals and gemstones, emphasizing the subterranean nature of rapid transit and the depth of this station. The artwork is a large panel made of dichroic and mirrored glass tiles that are lit from front and back, suspended in a double-height space. This artwork creates a reflective backdrop and brings light deep into the station, offering a wondrous and unexpected element for passengers.
