Yesterday Emily and I installed one part of Project Transplant. Our good friend Jeff caught the whole thing on video and made this amazing clip.

Getting our hands dirty

August 11, 2010

Team Emily is hard at work in Toronto today! We are cutting and soaking and beating and pulling and couching and pressing and packaging the enormous amount of hand pressed flax, hemp and abaca paper that this project will require.

Meanwhile, Team Emily’s Ottawa Branch affiliates are braving the wilderness to collect the bare bones of this project, the sticks. Everything is moving along nicely.

Saturday morning we will be installing right here, 2 Daly Avenue, on the lawn of Ottawa’s Arts Court. If you are in the neighborhood feel free to pop by for a chat! The official opening party will happen the following Saturday, August 21st from 2-5 pm. Hope to see you there!

So it begins

Now that we have a location secured we have begun to put the pieces together.

Small house…

Beginnings of first page/archway in underway….

More to come….

We have a spot

August 8, 2010

We have been offered multiple spots! ¬†Debating between then was tough but we have finally decided….

(drumroll) Ottawa’s own Arts Court!

And so, starting on August 14th 2010, we will be installing Transplant in the front of The Arts Court. Look for us on the corner of Daly Avenue and Nicholas Street in downtown Ottawa!

Promo Vid

Emily and Emily are getting excited about this! Sadly we still don’t have an official location but we do have an official promotional video! How cute is that?

Still searching

July 28, 2010

So my Mum left a note and I left a voice mail message but if we haven’t heard from our first choice’s empty lot owners soon we may need to move on to some of the others.¬† So if anyone has an unused lot suggestion that comes complete with permission that would be ideal. We’d like to get things in the ground soon so there there is still some time for things to grow and live before the frost.
