CheKothari_0

We’re proud to announce that our good friend Che Kothari, Toronto Photographer and Founding Director and Board Chairman of Manifesto Community Projects will be launching his first ever portfolio website on February 21, 2014. If you’re unfamiliar with Che’s work, he’s an incredible photographer and community leader who’s traveled the world shooting and sharing his experiences. We’ve decided to highlight some of his experiences with 10 Toronto-based artists that Che’s had the pleasure of shooting.

Nuzzles By RAW Design

nuzzle1

Check out what Toronto-based design firm RAW produced for Winnipeg’s 2014 Warming Huts Contest (An Art + Architecture Competition on Ice), which happened to claim first place.

PROJECT DESCRIPTION
Imagine a series of glowing mounds on the frozen river landscape, each creating immersive layers of light, warmth and interaction. Inspired by the insulating properties of fur, NUZZLES brings a unique, engaging experience to the visitors of the Assiniboine River. Moving away from the introverted enclosure, NUZZLES exhibits a heated, lit core, encompassed by a multitude of insulated appendages which allow users to nestle into the structure. Constructed from a geodesic lattice of hollow aluminum tubing, and an outer layer of foam bristles (pool noodles), NUZZLES provides an inner layer of still air in order to increase heat capacity. Occupants are encouraged to playfully interact with bristles in order to sculpt informal seating or standing space as well change the lighting dispersions of the glowing structure.

Sam Shuter – “The Introduction”

Here’s a quick recap from Toronto-based artist Sam Shuter’s first solo art show, “The Introduction”. The event was a huge success with a portion of her art sales being donated to The Remix Project, a local charity helping to support “at-risk” youth in the arts. Keep an eye on Sam as she continues to build a buzz as an emerging artist.
