On Saturday, almost a million people flooded downtown Toronto for the all-night art crawl known as Scotiabank Nuit Blanche. In between navigating the crowds and filling up on food-truck snacks, some attendees were actually able to take in a few of the more than 120 contemporary-art installations on display. We asked onlookers—some in awe, others fighting off liquor-induced confusion—to try, in their own words, to explain the stuff they were looking at. Here’s what they had to say.
