LeuWebb Projects engages people with both the tangible and the ephemeral with sound installations in public spaces. Christine Leu and Alan Webb live and work in Toronto, allowing them to learn from the city’s varied narratives, and incorporate these lessons into their diverse body of work.
Cascadia is a sound based installation mounted in the Gladstone’s central staircase. Drawing on our species’ complicated yet elemental relationship with water, the piece features a multi-channel recording of a series of springtime watercourses in the Humber and Don River watersheds. In the hyper urbanized context of Toronto, our water is more likely to be seen, if at all, than heard. Cascadia re-awakens a dormant connection with our surrounding landscape through the immediacy of sound.
