OPENING RECEPTION TODAY!

Today from 2-5 pm at the Arts Court in downtown Ottawa I will be hosting a reception for my latest endeavor. Come on down and check it out!

*Transplant* is an outdoor living book installation. Constructed from found natural materials both living and dead, this installation is subject to the whims of nature and the designs of man. Each page of this book resembles an arch inviting the audience to enter the immense tunnel book. Within the pages are paper pockets where seeds will begin to sprout as the structure is gradually beaten down by the weather. Additional arches/pages will be added throughout the exhibition as the evolution of decay and growth take over. This evolution speaks to the ebb and flow of construction and decay as the manmade world interacts with the natural one. The story of this project is one of transformation and reclamation of the urban landscape by nature. It is the story of a cycle of decay and rebirth and of a balance that can be achieved when nature’s collaboration is desired rather than fought.

Transplant Installation

This past little bit I have been working hard on preparing for the installation of Transplant. Yesterday, we completed stage one and have this GORGEOUS video to show for it thanks to Jeff Ngan.

The installation will continue to grow from August 14th – October 30th at the Arts Court in downtown Ottawa.
The opening/vernissage will be help on Saturday August 28th from 2 – 5pm at the Arts Court. Come on out and see for yourself what I have been up to. Maybe we could car pool…..

Little ideas are growing quickly….

Dear loyal fans and followers, I have news!

This AWESOME organization has just awarded me $1000 for being AWESOME! How AWESOME is that?! Well, the money is also maybe, probably, likely because of my AWESOME new collaborative project with artist Emily Cook.
Together, her and I are going to transform a small section of Ottawa, Ontario into something AWESOME. Just you wait and see….. the seeds have been planted in our minds, the funding is watering them, the interest in our idea is warming them and something will be sprouting up any minute now….

For more information about the project and the organization that is funding it click here.

More updates on this project as it develops. Promise!
