Awards Season

We had the good fortune of being awarded Honourable Mention at the City of London’s 2019 Urban Design Awards for our Terry Fox commemorative landscape artwork ‘Following in his Footsteps’. Realized in collaboration with Robert Cram Workshop, the project provides an experiential perspective into Terry Fox’s journey, inviting participants to physically engage with the pathway and gardens along London’s Thames River.

We were also nominated for a City of Edmonton Urban Design Award in the Urban Fragments category for our project ‘Animal Family’ at the Edmonton Valley Zoo.

Long Division

Our large-scale outdoor installation ‘Long Division’ is part of the Public Volumes exhibition taking place at multiple sites. ‘Long Division’ engages the site of Mississauga’s Bradley Museum, employing the fence as a tool for considering issues of exclusion, control, security and sanctuary. The piece invites visitors into the experience of divided space, public and private, open potentials and closed paths.

Following in his Footsteps

We were honoured to have our Terry Fox commemorative landscape, Following in his Footsteps, publicly unveiled during the 2018 Terry Fox Run in London, Ontario. Created as a living, dynamic space along the Thames River, the work integrates imprints of Terry’s iconic running gait, geology from the beginning and end of his journey, and native plantings that highlight key points of Terry’s story.

We worked with Robert Cram Workshop in developing the landscape elements of the artwork and Maker Sculpture in casting the unique pavers.

Out of the Box

Material and testing was underway this month as we carried out a site visit to the Edmonton Valley Zoo to survey our ‘Animal Family’ integrated public art work being readied for install. The piece was fabricated in sections and transported in carefully packed crates, colour coded!

Read all about it in our interview with the Edmonton Arts Council here.

Lighting the Winter Night

We recently mounted our Shine & Shimmer installation at Ontario Place for the inaugural Winter Light exhibition taking place from December 8th to March 18th. The West Island of Ontario Place will be home to 12 illuminated exhibits by 20 local artists. Woven through the fabric of the landscape, the exhibition will guide visitors through a journey of exploration all while enjoying the beautiful winter setting.

Site Visiting

We had a good trip out to Edmonton and Calgary to connect with our colleagues at the Edmonton Arts Council, Marc Boutin Architectural Collaborative, and Heavy Industries as we prepare our Animal Family piece for installation at the Edmonton Valley Zoo’s award-winning new Urban Barn, currently under construction. Of course Sylvester the resident zoo cat was welcome for the meeting, he just wasn’t allowed outside!

Art Underground

Join us June 5th for a Public Art Concept Presentation of our proposal Outside the Lines for Wilson Station on the Toronto Transit Commission’s subway system. The proposed project seeks to capture the site’s capacity for dynamic movement through bursts of colourful sculptural forms. Rather than a singular static art piece, Outside the Lines is playfully fluid. Popping out of walls, shooting through floors and coiling around columns, it flows through the sprawling station in the form of ten vibrant installations.

Nature’s Wild Backyard

We’re pleased to announce that we’re creating a new public artwork for the Edmonton Valley Zoo. Our piece Animal Family will be integrated into the new Urban Barn as part of the zoo’s Nature’s Wild Backyard revitalization. The redevelopment’s design by the Marc Boutin Architectural Collaborative has already won an award and the real thing will be well worth a visit once it’s complete. We’ll keep you posted as our project develops.
