Scrap metal, life-sized, welded "wall" horses located in the airport lobby. The goal was to give visitors a sense of hanging out amidst the horse herd as they waited for their flight.
The City of Medicine Hat was looking for a transportation themed artwork for the large grey walls of the newly renovated airport. They approved of my proposal and agreed that horses fall under the theme of “transportation “ and spoke to the rich history of Medicine Hat and it’s involvement with horses.
I really enjoyed working on this project and was happy with how it really does feel like you are standing amidst a bunch of horses at the airport!

CODA: Collaboration of Design + Art
The global online community that celebrates design projects featuring commissioned artworks.
[ manifesto ]
Art matters. Attention to the details of our environment leads to love of place, which brings us to take responsibility for the spaces where we live and work. And by extension, the people with whom we live and work. And by extension, to our local communities, our cities, our nations, and our world.
We champion the role of artists in our society. We need artists to provide us with inspiration, creativity, and imagination, and to help us envision a better world.
Architects and designers know that remarkable design can change everything. They connect the dots across disciplines, collaborating with artists to make the world a more beautiful place. They are the ultimate patrons of the arts.
In the process, design professionals promote imagination and creativity, and through their commissions, make original art integral to and accessible in people's lives.
Art in our public and private spaces helps us fight ordinary buildings, ordinary streets, ordinary cities. We celebrate the extraordinary.
The architecture of our buildings and the design of our interiors affect our happiness and well-being. Each of us deserves a daily dose of inspiration.
