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.

 



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.



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.


Grown Op

The fifth annual Grow Op 2017 wrapped up earlier this month, an incredible exposition of contemporary art exploring themes of landscape, ecology and design that we co-curated, taking over all 4 floors of the Gladstone Hotel. Thanks to the amazing work of the 39 participating artists who created 30 innovative projects that engaged and enlightened visitors over the course the show.

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.
