Radiantactivity at the Drake Devonshire

We recently mounted our piece ‘Radiantactivity’ at the Drake Devonshire Hotel in Wellington, Prince Edward County, Ontario. The commissioned work integrates with the hotel’s cladding and fronts onto a soon-to-be poured skating rink to take advantage of the joys of winter. Stay tuned for ice skating updates!

Artists Selected

We’ve completed our final project selections for Grow Op 2016 and to say we’re excited about the collection of work would be an understatement. Collaborating with a diverse jury and co-curator Graham Teeple, we’ve assembled a broad range of projects from artists working in the fields of landscape architecture, horticulture, painting, photography, sculpture, community engagement and all combinations in between. Stay tuned for details as we gear up to the April 2016 exhibition!

Catylising Creativity

Our friends from Ross Curtner and Scott Baker from Adjacent Possibilities talked about working with LeuWebb Projects and offered lessons learned for models of engagement between artists and non-artists alike as part of their discussion at the Creative Catalyst Symposium on Art & Social Innovation.

In conversation with artist, researcher and professor Filiz Klassen, the Weathering Climate Change: Bridging Art and Innovation talk examined how we can meaningfully connect the worlds of innovation with art and culture to address complex social issues like climate change.

Catching and releasing

In a short, three week period, we worked through an intensive process of ideation, collaboration, research, procurement, fabrication and installation, with the end results being unveiled at the Adjacent Possibilities opening event, Tuesday, August 26th.

The resultant project was undeniably enriched by the dialogue and engagement with the MaRS Studio Y fellows and our cleantech partner, Hydrostor. If you’re in Toronto, please stop by the MaRS building and have a look-see/listen/touch.

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!
