We are excited to be working with the City of Calgary Public Art Department to video the installation of ‘roger that’. A two, 12 metre-high sculptures, situated on either side of Crowchild Trail. The video will document the process and will include an interview with the artist, Bill Pechet. “Bill is the lead artist at PECHET Studio, an interdisciplinary practice based in Vancouver, Canada. In all their work, they are committed to developing environments that bridge art and imagination with everyday life, and they are dedicated to the idea that public space must be designed to offer a depth of experiential and playful encounter.” (City of Calgary/Public Art).

Despite some rain, the opening of the Barb Scott Park turned was a huge success. Hundreds showed up over the noon hour ceremony to listen to presenters including Mayor Naheed Nenshi. Later in the evening, celebrations continued featuring live jazz music, games, food and the interactive colours of the public art installation, ‘Chinook Arc’. Artists Blessing Handcock and Joe O’Connell were on hand to introduce and explain it. I was there with Design Cause to video and document the whole thing. Please check back by late June to see it.

Over the past couple of days, I’ve had the opportunity to film and speak with artist, Brian Tolle on the concept and development of his latest public art piece in Calgary. It’s an incredible piece or work with a great concept.
Fabricators at F&D Scene Changes work to shape the mold for the concrete sculpture.
Check out our video to learn more about the project.
Here is a short video of the Luminous Crossings sculpture for the city. It shows a rough overview of the installation with a voice over from the artist, Cliff Garten. A longer more detail video is also on its way.
Spent the weekend shooting video for Cliff Garten’s public art installation with City of Calgary. The piece looks incredible and is interactive with passing trains at night. A video documenting the project is in the works. Check out the photos here.
