Lori St. Clair comes from a Graphic Design background with a photography major and started her journey into the arts on a professional level. She has exhibited her work throughout Ontario, including the Parliament in Ottawa, and has won awards for her photographs, for illustration, and for her paper pulp sculpture.

Her passion is teaching anyone and speaking to everyone about the power of creativity in our lives and the need for it in our world today. Lori enjoys the enchantment that surrounds the arts created through our partnership with imagination. She has taken her passion for the arts, and also for collaborative pieces that build co-operative teamwork and interdependency, into schools and art programs in the community to cultivate a hospitable, nurturing environment that encourages exploration, experimentation and growth.

Main & Station Nonesuch is proud to be hosting several artists for the 2016 Leap Second Festival.  For the list of artists our Past and Present Artists Page…http://hmsnonesuch.com/artists-past-present/ or visit our Leap Second Residencies page for more detailed information about the participating artists and their projects… http://hmsnonesuch.com/2016-nonesuch-leap-second-residencies/

A leap second is an extra second between :59 and :00 that is left invisible on our watches and most computer systems. It’s usually faked using one of three glitchy processes – repeat, freeze, smear – to correctly adjust clock-time to the rotation of the earth. For us it means an opportunity to intervene in the flow of time creating a virtual synapse for new connections.” For more information about the Festival…http://leapsecond.online
