‘Urban Observations’ Toronto is in transition and how we tackle urban design issues such as density, access to transit and sustainability is critical in ensuring we remain an inclusive and livable city. Her art examines city planning challenges and opportunities in an increasingly urbanized world.
Michelle Lewin – Artist Statement:
‘Vestige’ Through distilling the nebulous into the tangible and concrete, I try to capture fleeting moments and render them permanent and substantial. Lately, preoccupied with how much of our natural world is changing and disappearing, much of my work is about species on the brink of extinction. I am concerned by how rapidly the world’s natural landscapes are changing forever. Change is accelerated these days and a collective sense of history and unity has disappeared. Our ability to remember and reflect seems permanently altered by a reliance on technology, and attention spans seem to be ever shrinking. In this climate I feel a sense of urgency to preserve some memory of our natural and social history before it slips forever out of the collective consciousness. Michelle would like to acknowledge the funding support from the Ontario Arts Council, an agency of the government of Ontario.
