TEDx Moncton HYPER-Art Collective Art Project (October, 2014)

 

Each project of this magnitude requires its own approach. My latest project from this category was created on October 4, 2014, during this year's edition of TEDx Moncton. TEDx is any locally organized variation of the very popular TED Talks. As a way to help energize and kickoff the event, I launched the "HYPER-ART Collective Art Project". In less than three minutes, all of the 153 people in attendance included their artistic participation by bending 22 originally straight segments of copper… quickly (they had 3 seconds each). The different shapes thus created inspired me to place their unique copper creations within the freshly troweled layer of concrete. Later, I added the colors and a protective coating to the work of art. This collective art project represents the high level of local interest in such events as this one. It is also an excellent example of the great things we can accomplish through the spirit of teamwork. In this photo gallery, you will find several pictures of the event including a few of the finished work of art.

This organization does amazing work with kids and young adults needing help.

For more details on this wonderful project, I propose reading a newspaper article in Telegraph Journal written by Kathy Kaulfield which explains concisely my approach to life. This article earned her a place on the shortlist for the Atlantic Journalism Award in the spring of 2011. Here is the newspaper article in a high-resolution PDF below.

World Acadian Congress 2009 (August, 2009):

 

Following is information on a mega-collective Art Project. During the World Acadian Congress 2009, which was held between August 7 and August 23, 2009, I had the pleasure of working on a massive undertaking. When I say massive, I mean 17 feet wide by 5 feet high and weighing over 1000 pounds. Fortunately, I wasn't alone. In fact, 8313 people contributed to the creation of a wonderful work of art. This Mega-Collective Art Project is definitely a high point in my career as an artist. Below is  a PDF copy of the commemorative plaque  I designed for this event  containing the names  of the participants (sorry, in French only),  as well as a local newspaper article. (More details and photos here)
