Almanacpublic art

Almanac, was commissioned by the City of Ottawa for an extension to the Francois Dupuis Recreation Centre in Orleans, ON. The piece involves layers of powder coated, laser cut metal with patterns representing wind, water and animals native to the area. The overall shapes are of waxing and waning moons, giving the pieces a contemplative and restful feel that reward repeated viewings. Almanac represents eastern Ottawa’s rich and diverse history while celebrating its flourishing future.
