FIGMENT Toronto

Fri, 16 Aug 2013 20:29:29 +0000

Figment is a participatory arts festival. Starting in New York, it now takes place in a few american cities every year and Toronto will be hosting it's first figment festival August 17-18th 2013 on Olympic island.

Inclusion is one of their guiding principles, everyone is invited to bring something, actively interact, and get themselves involved with art and express themselves.

It's also a free event that seeks to eschew the commodification of experience. The art is considered a gift and the event is organized by volunteers without the benefit of corporate sponsorship or advertising.

Come let your creativity flow Toronto.




2012 humber bridge sculpture | interactive arts

Thu, 06 Sep 2012 06:16:29 +0000

This past August Interactive Arts brought a few creatures, seemingly from the depths of lake Ontario, to the Humber Bay pedestrian bridge.

These larger than life critters swim overhead as you cross the bridge, lighting the night with their bio-luminescence LED lights blinking in response to their surroundings.

Our beautiful bridge will have this extra magical touch installed till September 20th 2012. I Hope they'll return next year.

If you've been to Toronto you've probably seen Greg's art. From little hearts decorating buildings, poetic catch phrases on the side walk, graphic design for Not Far From the Tree, to giant snoetry(snow poetry) Gregs art is absolutely everywhere. A simple google search of his name should give you an idea of the volume of his creativity.

Thanks Greg for adding the lovely joyful suprises around our city.

These flash mob/performance art type events bring people together and aim to brighten peoples day by shaking up routine public behaviour.

Here's a Ted talk explanation of the concept from the NY chapter:

Beautiful City

Mon, 16 May 2011 02:45:03 +0000

The Beautiful city project is an alliance made up of over sixty organizations that came together to help beautify Toronto.

They did this through public consultations and working with municipal government to place a tax on billboard ads to fund the arts.

On April 10 2010 the billboard tax passed and the aesthetic landscape of Toronto is indebted to Beautiful City for the effort it took to make this happen. Thank you. Of course there's still room for improvement. Visit their site to learn more about their next projects.
