Publishing Long Division

August saw media international coverage for our ‘Long Division’ project in several publications, including Glocal Design Magazine (Mexico), mooool design (China), Floor Nature (Italy). We’re happy that the project is able to reach a larger audience and potentially engage in a wider discourse around the nature of barriers and divisions across a variety of global contexts.

Curating Grow Op

We’re excited about the upcoming seventh edition of Grow Op opening next week at the Gladstone Hotel, our fourth in the role of curators. This year’s show is the biggest yet, with over 25 projects across all four floors of the hotel. It’s a jam packed exhibition with events happening each day, April 17th through the 21st, encouraging participants to engage with the artists in the critical dialogues taking place around climate, landscape, and ecology.

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.
