Grow-Op ’19: ENERGY

Exhibition Dates: April 18 – 21, 2019

Grow Op at the Gladstone Hotel, Toronto celebrates its seventh year in April 2019 with an exhibition of art, design, and ideas across a range of disciplines. The 2019 edition considers ENERGY; Clean energy, dirty energy, social energy, positive energy, negative energy, climate energy, embodied energy, resilient energy. Do we hoard, waste, commodify, burn it, or do we store, reuse, renew it?  How humans and other species live within and without natural systems of growth, change, abundance, scarcity, decay, and life.

Work in progress involves maquettes of fibre based armatures, Laser cut and 3D bio-filament structures. 

I am experimenting with Kai Parthay’s Grow-Lay bio-filament.

More coming soon!
