Regenerate Final Assembly Timelapse from Ben Z Cooper on Vimeo.

A couple of days before Maker Faire, we finally put together all the letters we’ve been working on. It welcomed the thousands of attendance to the festivities and was quite well received. A big thanks to all the amazing organizations and individuals that help make this happen.

This is a collaboration with Vancouver Design Nerds, Gen Why, eatART and some amazing individuals.

Regenerate reuses discarded materials to create a wall, a social special and letters that spell the word “regenerate”. Wood pallets, bike parts, wire, rope, fishing net, plastic bottles are some of the elements that will be assembled together for this installation.

The project also aims to create a public space around it. In this manner the in- stallation piece becomes an inhabitable space that contributes to social interaction and engagement.

Bring collaborative public art sculpture REGENERATE to your community

Watch the time-lapse video by Ben Z Cooper of the making of REGENERATE, a collaborative sculpture made from recycled/re-used/repurposed materials and greenery that currently resides at the BCIT Great Northern Way Campus.

It was created as part of last year’s Mini Maker Faire by members of the intergenerational community of the Gen Why Media Project in partnership with the Vancouver Design Nerds and eatART.

Yesterday, the creators learned it will be evicted on Monday and sent to the dump if a new home is not found. If a new home IS found, custodial duties will remain with the creators.

Email Fiona Rahyer to bring this important work of public art to your property.
