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!

LeuWebb Projects was recently invited to Denmark to participate in the Gaesteatelier Hollufgard’s Tilsynekomster International Sculpture Symposium 2015. The intensive 10 day forum provided lively discourse and a fertile environment to develop project ideas for site-based works that will be further gestated leading to installation within the grounds of Hollufgard in June, 2016.
An exhibition of the project sketches and models is on view at the Gaesteatelier through October, 2015.
Additional documentation of the symposium’s proceedings are now online.
LeuWebb Projects takes part in this year’s expanded Come Up To My Room Design Festival at the Gladstone Hotel with the installation ‘Reflections on Rotation’. Experience it in person and check out the rest of the amazing transformations taking place in the Hotel over the next week!
Brave the cold and come to historic Fort York to experience our project live!
And if you can’t make it tonight, don’t worry, the piece has been selected for a special extended exhibition through to October 13th.
LeuWebb Projects was commissioned by the Gladstone Hotel to create the inaugural installation for their Melody Bar’s new revitalization. Coinciding with the hotel’s 125 year anniversary, our piece “Reflections on Rotation” draws on the Gladstone’s rich history for its inspiration while suggesting portals to new possibilities and unforeseen outcomes.
The work will be in place for the next several months but the public unveiling “125 THEN/NOW/NEXT” takes place tomorrow!
While in the bar, just look up and you will see it…
The installation will be at Toronto’s historic Fort York, in a zone curated by Magda Gonzalez-Mora.
We’re working with long time collaborators Jeff Lee and Omar Khan to put together this large scale piece that integrates light, sound and responsive technologies.
More details to follow…
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.
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!
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.
