Reflections on 125 years

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…

All Night, Alright

We’re happy to finally be able to share the news that we’ll be presenting Melting Point, a new responsive landscape art work at this year’s Scotiabank Nuit Blanche!

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…

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!

Lake Effect

LeuWebb Projects is contributing audio compositions in collaborating with Victoria Taylor Landscape Architect with Linda Dervishaj to create the installation Ebb and Flow, as part of summer group exhibition Lake Effect: Architects Respond to our Access to Water at the Architecture Gallery, Harbourfront Centre, Toronto.

Join us Friday June 20, 2014, (6-10pm) for the opening reception!

“We are drawn to water where activity is richly concentrated and held captive along an edge. Hard edge or soft, we move toward and with the crowds – back and forth – drawn to embrace the public spectacle of the urban waterfront. Coming and going. Ebb and flow.”

In the Library

LeuWebb Projects’ new photography exhibition Unpacking the Stacks is on display for the month of April at the Don Mills branch of the Toronto Public Library.

The project examines the book as a vessel of culture, language and identity and searches for the book’s place in a fluid information landscape. Take a trip to “Canada’s First Planned Community” and see Unpacking the Stacks before its gone.
