I was contacted by Little Inventors (UK), an incredible organization that gives children around the world the opportunity to showcase their creativity and problem solving skills, and was given the honour of being a Maker, to be partnered with a young inventor. I have been having a wonderful time working virtually with my 8 year old design partner, Erica. My job is to create a 3-D model of her Plastic Masterpiece Maker design, which aims to tackle the processing of plastics that have been removed from the ocean. The finished work will be unveiled soon! In the meantime, I invite you to check out some early photos of the piece and more details about the design and Little Inventors here. Little Inventors is supported by public funding through Arts Council England.
I’m excited to be part of Outsiders and Others Art Society’s upcoming group show “Spirituality, Art and Community”. This wonderful not-for-profit, Vancouver society has a focus on bring non-traditional artists to the forefront. In keeping with its title, the show will be held at Vancouver’s Christ Church Cathedral, 690 Burrard Street. One of my new works, “Eternal”, will be on display with the show, which runs from March 27 – May 5. Learn more about Outsiders and Others here.
I am thrilled to have my new work “Cycle 3” take the place of my previous installation “Are We There Yet?” at Vancouver International Airport. “Cycle 3” is an all-metal, marble run style piece – a form of kinetic sculpture that I have really enjoyed working on. There are more marble runs to come! Look for “Cycle 3” in the domestic terminal at YVR.
I am honoured and pleased to have created a second commissioned piece for Science World (formerly TELUS World of Science, formerly Science World!) in Vancouver, BC. This as yet unnamed work is due to be installed as part of a wall of gears in the Eureka Zone activities exhibit. I’ve really been enjoying working with this important educational organization! The onset of covid-19 delayed the anticipated March 2020 installation, but I will be sure to let you know when it is completed and ready for visitors. In the meantime, check out this preview of the piece in motion, and find out more about Science World here.
