DEEP BLUE

We are honoured to be part of the Great Art for Great Lakes initiative, a multi-city art project that is bringing together 8 great lake cities to co-create 8 permanent artworks that promote water literacy and protection.

As the selected team to represent Toronto, Labspace Studio will be presenting our newest project DEEP BLUE at the Ontario Science Centre, in collaboration with seventh grader Daniel Ranger, a Great Lakes Trust junior ambassador. This participatory art installation will celebrate the beauty, ecology and majestic depths of Lake Ontario by using geodata and hundreds of pieces of suspended origami to map its “Bathymetry” (i.e. depth, terrain and form).

The installation will be unveiled on October 12th, 2017 at the Ontario Science Centre. 10am-11:30am.
