Funded Projects

Face2Facetime Fatigue – Graham Hooton

Two small portable portals/windows that resemble a video call interface, either handheld or mounted 6ft apart in a public space (Trout Lake Park), so that two participants can engage in a socially distanced call, like we’ve grown accustomed to, when “real life” interactions feel too overwhelming! Includes a small mirror in so that you can still check yourself out while having the conversation.

Umbilical – Dunamis Detheridge

The project is a free-standing, mixed-media sculpture consisting of a 6 foot globe with a 4 foot fetus inside, sitting on top of a 3 foot cube made of wooden gears. The fetus is wire frame and covered in rice paper and illuminated from the inside like a lantern. It’s umbilical cord is attached to the Canadian Province. Concepts: Renewal, global perspective, reflection, values, growth, innocence and fragility.

Lead the Heart, To Show the Way – Edd MacDonald

A 4′ high, gently curved wall, 7′ in length. It’s thickly plastered with multiple layers of brightly coloured plaster, the Inner most being black, the outer most being a stucco off white, with a rainbow of colours in between. In one upper corner a simple heart has been scratched through the off white plaster to reveal the red of the second layer. A variety of scratching implements are provided for participants to add their own embellishments.
