Nyctophilia means love of the night or love of darkness. Nyctophilia is also the name of an art installation in Toronto. The project consists of a cluster of about 30 street lights that can glow different colours. It is located at the corner of Dennis Avenue & Weston Road.
The light is generated by LED lights which gives it a softer glow. Otherwise this would be the brightest street corner in the entire city. When we visited, the lights reminded us of Christmas lights and some snow even started to fall. If you find yourself in this area one night be sure to drive by and see the light. Remember, it is not some sort of hydro company screw up, it's art.
