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!

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.

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.

A Touch of Light at Nuit Blanche

Scotiabank Nuit Blanche is upon us! Be sure to stop by the Canadian Music Centre this Saturday as we premiere our latest responsive work titled A Touch of Light.

This piece needs to be seen and heard in person and the intimate performance space of the Canadian Music Centre -one of Toronto’s best-kept secrets- is the perfect venue. Live piano performance will run from 7pm to 7am.

Scotiabank Nuit Blanche 2013 – coming up!

LeuWebb Projects is pleased to announce that we will be participating once again in Scotiabank Nuit Blanche, this time in partnership with the Canadian Music Centre.

Our project, A Touch Of Light, explores the sensual intersection of sound and sight, and acts as a visual rendition of the live performances taking place at the Canadian Music Centre during the night of Nuit Blanche.

 

Tech team masterminds Jeff Lee and Omar Khan are hard at work helping put together custom hardware controllers and breaking down the coding necessary to make all of it work.

Night Market Fun (part 1)

Setting up LeuWebb’s ‘Snacks on Wax’ foodcart made its debut last night at The Stop’s Night Market. Paired on the first night of the event with Rose & Sons, the cart of found sounds and objects brought a smile to the faces of hungry patrons. The second night of the event pairs Paulette’s with the cart to serve up tasty pastries.

Special thanks to Ring Audio and June Records for their assistance in providing materials for ‘Snacks on Wax’.
