MEDIA: Recycled Railroad Tracks and 10 gauge sheet metal
DIMENSIONS: 36″ x 96″ x 60″
BUDGET: $40,000 (for full-sized sculpture)
PROJECT CONCEPT: A maquette of a multifunctional work of art, constructed from recycle railway tracks proposed for a transit station. The sculpture serves as a bench and raises visual awareness of libraries in the community.
My journey to becoming an artist is the subject of two recently released short films:
“Reimer Reason” was selected as a finalist in the Dirtbag Film Festival in Kimberley, BC (April 2019). This was put together by two very talented local film makers – Levi Froese and Jeremy Friesen – better known as Leroy and The Bean.
“Forging Ahead” tells the story of how, at the age of 15, I began my career as a blacksmith. It was shot by Cranbrook’s local cable tv station.
