If you wear one, they will want one. One of my earliest stops of the night was Marcin Kedzior and Christine Kim’s Paper Orbs. Their small parade float was filled with folded orbs hanging from wooden branches; you plucked one down as you walked through, which meant the installation’s structure was constantly changing. The orbs unfold into a circle, which you can wear as a hat, a frilly collar, or a visor around your eyes (though I can’t recommend this last method considering the number of drunk teens you need to dodge at Nuit Blanche). While I had to wait about 25 minutes to get one, without much more than some nearby food trucks to look at, the experience shaped the rest of my night, with fellow Blanchers continuously asking where they could get one. Watchable art is great, but wearable art is even better.

Highlights from this year were those whom remembered that the point and purpose of the evening is interactivity, such as the tactile beauty of Paper Orbs, in which visitors were invited to dismantle a giant origami statue by taking away ornate paper crowns, which were seen decorating many of the attendee’s heads throughout the night.

while it was a given that Ai Weiwei’s Forever Bicycles would be the standout installation, who would’ve thought Paper Orbs would win the popularity contest? The lineup was so far back that I had to verify with someone that they were in fact waiting for a folded paper hat. He naturally shifted from side-to-side and looked away before whispering a barely audible “yes.” Now that’s dedication.
