Participating Artist – Luisa Ayala and Street Haven at the Crossroads Women Emergency Shelter (PULP: paper art party 2014)

PULP: paper art party is an investigation of the meaning of the triple bottom line: environmental, economic, and social. This year we are proud to demonstrate how a fun party can create positive social impact on multiple levels. Funds raised at the event and volunteer work will be donated to Street Haven at the Crossroads Women Emergency Shelter.

But together with the staff at the shelter, we managed something far more important than money. Professional artist Luisa Ayala has kindly agreed to coordinate creative sessions with tenants of the shelter. These women will join us at the event with their very own reclaimed materials art installation!

Here is the project as described by Ayala:

Rainbow House is a collaborative art piece made out of 12″ by 12″ modular tiles of corrugated cardboard, coloured paper strips, and hard cardboard from washing machines packaging. Each tile is created by a woman living at Street Haven Shelter.

Participating Artist – Mona Dai and Evan Brock (PULP: paper art party 2014)

Evan Brock is a fourth year student at the University of Waterloo, studying architecture.  His interest in interdisciplinary design is often the focal point of his work.  Inspiration often comes from exploring non-standard methods, such as using projection, animation and lighting to enhance the physical spaces created.  Previous school projects sparked the interest to use weaving techniques, parametric design and projection mapping for the Pulp Paper Art Party.
