Closer to the edit

We’ve created a kinetic sculpture that recalls the spirits of vanished means of production for EDIT: Expo for Design Innovation & Technology, at the former Lever Soap factory on the Don River in Toronto. Running from September 28 to October, 2017, the show seeks to provide a platform for ideas that can feed the planet sustainably, build more resilient cities, expand education access, and deliver innovative healthcare solutions to all corners of the earth.

With thanks to the Ontario Arts Council for their support of this project.


Creative City / Designlines

We made an appearance this month in the current issue of Designlines magazine. Speaking to Alexandra Caufin and getting nicely photographed by Naomi Finlay in front of our piece at Perkins + Will‘s Toronto office was a delightful experience.

On the Beach

In/Future proved to be an incredible re-imagining and re-invigoration of Ontario Place, that neglected public land occupying a special place in our memories and on the shore of Lake Ontario. We were honoured to create our component sculpture Flotsam/Jetsam for the exhibition and witness it shift and evolve through the actions of waves, weather and visitors over the course of the ten day festival.


Office + Colour

We’re currently in the development stages of creating a new commissioned piece for Perkins + Will’s Toronto office. Working with light and colour, Collaborative Chromatics will occupy a clean white south facing wall within their top floor loft workspace, the perfect canvas to produce swaths of glowing colours and shapes shifting with the cycles of daylight and night.

 


Inside and Out

We had a blast in ushering in the celebrations around this year’s Inside Out Toronto LGBT Film Festival by creating an installation for the Launch Party in collaboration with multimedia artist Roxanne Luchak.

Held at the St. James Cathedral Centre, the event was followed later in the month by the Opening Party, where we mounted a variation on our piece again with Roxanne, this time at the TIFF Bell Lightbox’s Malaparte.


Momentum Accumulator

We’re in the fabrication stage of our piece Perpetual Momentum Accumulator for Norm Li studio. It’s always amazing seeing a work take shape in material form after so many steps from concept to reality. We’ve been working with Punchclock Metalworks on this one, spending time in the shop, making, tweaking and testing.


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!

Skulptursymposium, Denmark

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.
