Art + Energy = Possibilities

LeuWebb Projects was recently invited to participate in the inaugural Adjacent Possibilities in art + energy project at the MaRS Discovery District. Facilitated through MaRS’s unique Studio Y program, the initiative pairs artist with clean energy innovators to develop representations of solutions to climate disruption.

We learned about the fascinating yet simple process to use compressed air to store energy (think balloons) from our entrepreneurial counterpart, Hydrostor, and engaged with fellow participants Aaron Li Hill and Morgan Solar, along with MakeLab and MNB Networks. Installations will be unveiled at MaRS on the evening of August 26th!

Children of the Corn

LeuWebb Projects escaped for what is becoming an annual tradition, a fruitful artist residency at Spark Box Studio in Prince Edward County.

Besides reconnecting with lovely proprietors and artists Chrissy and Kyle, we met the remarkable French photographer Alexia Villard and wonderful New Zealand printmaker Emma Mudgway. Rico the dog was also mildly pleased to see us.

Lake Effect

LeuWebb Projects is contributing audio compositions in collaborating with Victoria Taylor Landscape Architect with Linda Dervishaj to create the installation Ebb and Flow, as part of summer group exhibition Lake Effect: Architects Respond to our Access to Water at the Architecture Gallery, Harbourfront Centre, Toronto.

Join us Friday June 20, 2014, (6-10pm) for the opening reception!

“We are drawn to water where activity is richly concentrated and held captive along an edge. Hard edge or soft, we move toward and with the crowds – back and forth – drawn to embrace the public spectacle of the urban waterfront. Coming and going. Ebb and flow.”

Cascadia at Grow Op

LeuWebb Projects will be presenting Cascadia, a sound-based installation at Grow Op: Exploring landscape and place, a four-day event that celebrates innovative ideas and conceptual responses to landscape and place across a broad range of creative practices.

Embedded into the Gladstone Hotel and its environs, from adventitious niches to feature rooms, Grow Op 2014 presents work that explores new territories. The projects symbiotically connect to tell stories about water, memory, urbanism, natural process, public space, everyday materiality, hunting, urbanism and rural food economies.

Opening reception is Friday, April 25, 2014,  7pm – 10pm. Be there and listen for Cascadia, washing down the hotel’s central staircase!

Special thanks to Bay Bloor Radio.

In the Library

LeuWebb Projects’ new photography exhibition Unpacking the Stacks is on display for the month of April at the Don Mills branch of the Toronto Public Library.

The project examines the book as a vessel of culture, language and identity and searches for the book’s place in a fluid information landscape. Take a trip to “Canada’s First Planned Community” and see Unpacking the Stacks before its gone.

Dreaming Along the Pan Am Path

‘Brellies’ is a proposal by LeuWebb Projects for a series of public art pieces to animate a section along the planned Pan Am Path for Toronto’s Pan Am/Parapan Am Games 2015.

The Pan Am Path is a remarkable initiative combining the power of culture and sport to create a living path across Toronto. Working with a Toronto Local Arts Service Organization, East End Arts, we hope to further develop the design to engage the community and site in this section of the city’s inner suburbs.
