I was really excited to be asked by Labspace to take part in this years Sculpting New Reads show:

Sculpting New Reads is the annual installation art program of The Word On The Street Toronto – Canada’s biggest book and magazine festival. Curated by Labspace Studio, this contemporary art program brings together Canadian artists and authors to explore how books can inspire new ways of thinking, creating, and innovating. Four local artists have been paired with books released in 2014. Each artist has been challenged to create an art installation inspired by the themes of their book, applying their own unique practice to the creative process.

The book I was paired with was the fantastic UnderMajorDomo Minor by Patrick Dewitt.

The work will be shown September 27th at the Word on the Street Festival and from October 22 to November 1st at the International Authors Festival, both in Toronto.
