As twilight began to fade, Mackenzie lit a lantern beside him and kicked back with one of the day’s papers. He barely had a chance to begin reading the first paragraph when unfathomable sounds from outside began growing in volume. He rushed to the window, just able to grab the sill as a bright flash enveloped him. He opened his eyes to see a very different world out his window from the one he knew. Crowds of people stared up at him from glowing portals on his lawn as he incredulously stared back. William Lyon Mackenzie had been transported three centuries into the future to the year 2167.

His house? The newest site of an EnvisionTO time portal.

Come experience 2167 for yourself.

The portal will open 09.30.17 at 19:00:00. 

EnvisionTO is a collective of Toronto-based artists working to create a portal for experiencing and re-imagining Toronto's historical topography.
