·Mara Marxt Lewis and Tyler Lewis ( Austria / U.S.A)
Mara and Tyler are visual and sound artists respectively.-wife and husband duo- began collaborating in 2013 at the Banff Centre, Canada. Their immersive multimedia artworks have continued to be the main focus of their collaborative practice as their working relationship strengthens and evolves with each piece. In their practice they focus on the complex relationship between humankind and nature, believing that how we engage with our natural environment is at times harmonious and other times oblivious. They present both of these perspectives in installation artworks using found objects, photography and audio-recordings to place elements of the natural world in dialogue with those of modern humanity. They participated in artist in residence programs in Scotland (Common Ground Residency), Germany (Pilotenkueche), Canada (The Banff Centre), United States (Elsewhere Studios) and even organized their own residence program in Seattle area (With the berries). Their work has been shown in venues in Scotland, Canada, the United States and Germany.

She looks for and works around how to build meaningful fictions and connections of all kinds for the futures.

·Ron Wild (Canada)
Ron is an artist living in Toronto, often collaborating with mathematicians, scientists, and medical researchers. These collaborations facilitate the melding together of disparate processes, ideas, and contexts toward the goal of new discovery. A cross-camp runner, transporting ideas from one silo of expertise to another, he not only cross-pollinates original ideas, but also illustrates the lateral thinking explorations that spawned them in the first place. Rapid prototyping enables a fearless ‘let’s see what happens’ mode of playful experimentation and development in Wild’s work. Ron’s most widely known for his unique ‘smART Map’ digital mashups incorporating 80-100 layers of icons, graphics, and opaque background images. His Raw’n’ Wild signature montage style evolved from a personal visual note keeping system he developed while prototyping graphical user interfaces in the computer industry.
Now he actively explores ‘Digit All’ capabilities including; CNC (computer numerical control), interactive / programmable (Internet of Things), smart phone apps, virtual graffiti, projection, and 3D printing. An active portfolio of long term projects includes; Map of the Great Ideas (information mapping interface), MAPSwithOUTborders (‘No Compromise’ alternative dispute resolutions), LazyR Cutting (public art stencils), Tensegrity (cardboard tube structures), The Arctic Circle Expedition (Facebook group concerning global warming and single-use plastic pollution), WallBridge and Bottled Water Glacier (public art sculpture / structure), lenticular and anamorphic projections. Ron has been Artist-in-residence at the Banff Centre (Canada), Canadian Film Centre Media Lab (Toronto), Foundacion Vasarely (France), the Arctic Circle Expedition (Norway), and AADK Centro Negra (Spain).
