  1. Canadian artist Bill Pechet has designed an impressive large-scale artwork for the new Tuscany LRT Station in northwest Calgary. Comprised of two, 12 metre-high sculptures, situated on either side of Crowchild Trail, the artwork titled 'roger that' slowly reveals itself as a pair of radiant constellations.

    Artist’s concept rendering (View from within – looking up at night)
    Inspired by physicist/philosopher Roger Penrose, roger that adopts Penrose’s brilliant tile geometry to create repeating and random cycles of shapes. Visitors to the artwork might first experience it as irregular and arbitrary but then, out of the apparent disorder and with a slight shift of position, a perfect shape emerges allowing for a moment of greater understanding and clarity.
