After another campaign of "Trash Isles" took attention and more over the Gran Prix at Cannes last year, this new striking ad from Greenpeace definitely should stick harder in the hearts of many. If not, than what else?
This stark series of ads Greenpeace Canada created illustrate just how obviously harmful plastic straws are to aquatic animals. Created by Rethink in Toronto, the ads are hard to swallow yet were designed to prompt businesses to reconsider the use of straws.
A fish, turtle and bird are inside a drink, with a straw coming out of their mouths. “Don’t suck the life from our oceans” reads each ad.
Although the campaign singles out straws as harmful, Greenpeace Canada looks to draw attention to the ill effects of throwaway plastic in general, including lids and cups.

The title sequence for FITC Toronto 2018 is built on the theme of Transform. It aims to morph the spatial perception of its viewers as it takes them through a constantly shifting, never-ending journey into a series of patterns, landscapes, and environments that exist between two and three dimensional space. In each world, 2D and 3D programmatic processes are combined to create rich, organic animations and sprawling graphic forms.

"Relentless with their mission of diffusing emerging music onto the scene, Red Bull launched Red Bull Radio. The web based radio station offers an eclectic programming that also includes interviews with musicians, critics, industry thinkers and music mavens. Recognizing that every show has its own identity, Baillat set a unique tone corresponding to each of their themes. In keeping with the modus operandi of the Baillat's Red Bull campaign concept, the studio called on various local illustrators and graphic designers to unleash a series of animated GIFs. Staying in true form, the results resonated in outstanding, eccentric and upbeat renditions."
Montreal-based artist Jannick Deslauriers is widely-recognized for her ghost-like sculptures made of delicate fabric. Deslauriers is currently presenting new works at the Art Mûr Montreal spanning life-sized versions of a demolished car, train models, and telephone lines. Each piece is crafted out of transparent textiles such as aluminum mesh, silk, and tulle.
The self-titled show is currently on the view at Art Mûr Montreal up until April 28.
"Trevor Wheatley and Cosmo Dean work together to create large installations based around phrases and logos that are part of the common lexicon. Casually used terms like “all good” and the shrug emoji take on larger-than-life dimensions in the duo’s three dimensional versions, which are suspended from cables, integrated into chain link fences, toted in truck beds, and painted alongside graffiti. Wheatley and Dean have partnered with music festivals, fashion brands, and the creative house Justkids to install their work. Up next, the artists will be embarking on a trip to Mexico to create new paintings in rural areas." via Colossal
Memory Lapses are temporary installations photographed by François Ollivier when he revisited places linked to strong memories, past or recent. By overexposing reflective material in the process, data becomes absent from the digital file, creating an empty zone in the image that alters reality and distorts our perception: like time and distance do.
Conceptual artist Alan Belcher explores an intersection between photography and sculpture, creating artworks he defines as ‘photo-objects’. His ‘_____.jpg’ study approaches the jpeg icon with a manner of directness and humour.
The installation shots from Belcher’s exhibition ‘Preview’ at Le Consortium assemble over one hundred ‘_____.jpg’ pieces in various layouts, causing a visual glitch between the gallery’s white wall and a folder of jpeg previews on a computer screen.

Martin Wittfooth was born in 1981 in Toronto, Canada. He spent his childhood in Finland, before moving back to Canada as a teenager. Through his paintings, Martin presents a world which is dystopian by its very definition. The Earth he depicts is void of human life, and filled with strong symbolic implications that the root cause is of our own making; pricipally our disconnection from, and disrespect for, the natural world.
