Collaborated with Artist Noel Harding Studio and landLAB for a public art competition in Ottawa, Ontario, Canada.
In 2008, landLAB and artist Noel Harding were selected as the winning team for a public art commission at 180 kent Street in Ottawa, Ontario, Canada for the private development group Minto. The work, as titled, points outside itself – being a city mind dreaming of the woods. The silhouettes of plantings imagine, identify, and celebrate a symbolic character of the Canadian Wilderness that resonates in a quintessential relation as if holding the reality of Tom Thompson’s “The Jack Pine.” Plant material becomes more than simply landscape as they pay homage to nature itself; celebrated within a grand vessel. Reflective steel becomes the giant trunk of a fallen tree with an extruded branch, renewal in the reality of living trees and grasses protruding – turning (1RPM) in the physical illustration of time. ‘NORTHSHORE’ is a confirming statement. The meanings are rich in evolution and layering yet succinct and pointed in symbol. I was responsible for all digital presentation graphics which included conceptual stills, presentation boards, and animations of pedestrian and building level experiences as well as initial design concepts, which originated with the previously mentioned Arriva42 ‘Landscape River’ project.
