Making and Shaking

LeuWebb Projects is working with the Ontario Crafts Council once again in creating a site specific installation for their annual Maker Shaker Fundraising event.

We’re keeping the piece under wraps for now, but below is a detail pic of some of the materials we’re working with.

The event takes place at Neubacher Shor Contemporary on May 8th.

LeuWebb Projects were featured in Andrew Sardone’s lovely article about Come Up To My Room’s 10 Year Anniversary (that’s us in the upper right of the pic above). 

Here’s an excerpt (below) from the NOW Magazine article. See the full article here.

 

2011: Leu Webb (Christine Leu & Alan Webb)

Originally we were hoping to do up one of the private rooms with something immersive and intimate, but we were offered the Ballroom, where the Love Design Party would be happening, instead. With Alan’s background as part of the wabi collective producing electronic music events, it was actually not a bad fit.

We centred on the idea of a cloud pulsating with the music of the party like lightning flashing in a summer sky. To create the cloud, we used a variety of weather balloons that were up to 5 feet in diameter and worked with our friends Jeff Lee and Omar Khan to install lighting inside them that would react to the music. We also wanted to integrate the DJs with the installation, so we put them in the middle of the room to let the crowd swirl around.


Workplace Affairs Opening

We’ve put together a show for this year’s Toronto Design Offsite Festival titled Workplace Affairs and are looking forward to the opening this coming Saturday.

Workplace Affairs is an exploration of the relationship of space to the creative process. The exhibition runs Saturday January 19 to Sunday January 27, 2013 at East of Keele.

Curated and photographed by LeuWebb Projects, the exhibition gives visitors a peek into the creative spaces of a selected group of local artists; examining artefacts of production and documenting the workspaces that enabled their creation.

Featuring the work and workplaces of Melissa Fisher, Patrick Svilans, Joy Charbonneau, Lizz Aston, Patrick Yeung, Clayton McMaster and Jyhling Lee.
