True North, an art installation project for BCAA’s headquarters in Burnaby, B.C.

Installed by our good friends at Willow & Stump.

True North was an art project that has been in the making for several months last year just this week all three art pieces have finally been installed as a permanent feature at the BCAA headquarters in Burnaby, British Columbia.

Installed by the front lobby of BCAA’s headquarters.

This project was the culmination of many months of collaborative ideation between our studio and the bright minds at BCAA’s marketing and brand team. The main focus was to visually tell BCAA’s brand story in a fun and positive way. Through many brainstorm sessions, we landed this visual concept that incorporated these brand pillar concepts: ‘Putting people first’, ‘Protecting our home’, ‘Doing the right thing’, ‘Shaping the future’, and ‘The power of community.’

Here’s a quick timelapse of our live painting sessions in Osoyoos.



We didn’t just want the artwork to be painted on commercial processed wood so we looked to our friend Adam Corneil from Naturally Crafted and Unbuilders for an eco-friendly approach. We ended up sourcing a 100-year-old fir wood from a demolished home in the Shaughnessy neighbourhood (King Edward and 41st area). 

Finalizing the art back in our studio in Vancouver.

We then got our friends at Willow and Stump to process the wood (the wood was in really rough shape when it arrived) and build us, three solid artboards, out of it. After the boards were built we had it couriered (6’ x 4’) to Osoyoos, B.C., where we would paint the approved art live during BCAA’s annual leadership conference which was held at the beautiful Spirit Ridge resort. Over the course of 3-4 days, we painted live on location among the hundreds of BCAA leadership staff that were in attendance.

It was our first time in Osoyoos so we were in for a real treat. The town is gorgeous, to say the least, and the drive there was just spectacular because of the amazing scenery filled with rolling hills, lakes and mountain ranges.

We really lucked out with the weather.
It was an absolute stunner looking around our resort.

Salt Spring Island Diaries. Our art installation in 5 days on this beautiful property.

A shot of the kitchen area art installation.

This art installation project is hands down one of our most favourite projects of 2019. The weather was perfect and the property we were on was spectacular to the say the least. We were working inside this amazing custom home (glass doors all around that slide open on all sides!) sitting on over 100 acres of land surrounded by tall pines and a little lake out front was straight out of a postcard. When we arrived we were greeted by the workers on site and Andrew Latreille, the talented architectural photographer that Patrick flew out from Vancouver to document our art installation process for the week.

Day 1.

Arriving on the property the first day.

A few snaps of the main house and the gorgeous guest house just 100 metres away sitting in the field of grass surrounded by tall pines and a valley.

Day 1 started late. We didn’t arrive on location until 2pm. Once in the house, I started sketching out both illustrations with a chalk on one hand and the print out of the art on my other hand. The entire sketching process took about 2 hours. While I chalked, Denise, Aiken and Audrey (yes, even our kid came!) went to check in at our AirBnB 15 min. away from the site.

Fixie Window Display by Chairman Ting x Tangible Interaction

Written by . Filed under Drawings, Design. Tagged , , , , , , , , . 6 Comments.

This simple video projection window display installation was a collaborative art project between Chairman Ting and Tangible Interaction in Vancouver, Canada.

The installation piece was created for only one night during the popular fireworks event to help maximize impact and generate awareness for Single Bicycles, a quality bicycle brand situated in downtown Vancouver on Robson Street.

From concept to production, this art installation took over a month to prepare, execute and test. The custom music track was composed and produced by Tom Pettapiece.
