Micah Lexier 2016
BAY ADELAIDE CENTRE EAST TOWER, TORONTO, ON
Mosaika fabricated two artworks for artist Micah Lexier’s project at Bay Adelaide Centre East Tower, a dot and an outline.
Mosaika created hundreds of thousands of small ceramic sticks – each one a bit bigger than a matchstick – glazed either black or white. It took about 30 people a year to make the tiny tiles. Each stick was then snapped in two before it was placed in the massive mosaic that features 1.6 million separate pieces.
The works are equally striking whether one is driving by, or standing right next to the wall.
MATERIALS: Hand-glazed and hand-cut sticks of ceramic tile
