Caitlind and Wayne Headshot

Caitlind r.c. Brown & Wayne Garrett (Calgary, Canada) work with diverse mediums and materials, ranging from artificial light to re-appropriated architectural debris. Their practice combines divergent aesthetic and industrial backgrounds, often resulting in transformative public sculptures and installations. Beckoning viewers with interactive contexts and novel materials, their projects invite strangers to share in experiential moments, sometimes prompting unwitting collaborations. Mass-produced objects are often used to reference cities as an immeasurable mass of materials, people, and situations, evoking the possibility of renewed understanding through a critical shift in perspective. Previous works have appeared at festivals, galleries, and museums internationally, including: Garage Center for Contemporary Culture (Moscow, Russia), Pera Museum (Istanbul, Turkey), Whanki Museum (Seoul, South Korea), Illingworth Kerr Gallery (Calgary, Canada), I Light Marina Bay (Singapore), GLOW Forum of Light + Architecture (Eindhoven, Netherlands), and elsewhere. Their sculpture, CLOUD, was short-listed for an Innovation by Design Award in 2013 by Fast Company (NYC).

When working independently, Wayne is a machinist, musician and composer; Caitlind is an artist, and co-founder and co-curator with WRECK CITY curatorial collective.www.wreckcityproject.wordpress.com

  5. Hi,

    Last Christmas I worked on a rather beautiful event in Kew Gardens, there were some sculptures by French company t-i-l-t and they were very striking. I think this would be a perfect place to exhibit some of your work, you will be seen by thousands. From children and families to other artists and creative professionals.
    Please consider this!

    I would love to see your work in person, I am a great admirer and your cloud piece was the biggest inspiration for my third year Degree Design Exhibition!

    Thank you for your amazing work.

    Ellie
