Freewaves, Anne Bray and the attendees of ArtNight Pasadena will collaborate to present a new kind of interactive public work exploring current attitudes towards art and world events. Freewaves’ videos by the following artists will be looped throughout Side Street Projects’ walls, screens, fences, and patio.Along side of Freewaves’ artist videos, Anne Bray and friends of Freewaves, Vera Makianich, Daniel Garcia and Cindy Ly Rozas will show micro projections on attendees and surfaces throughout Side Street Projects. Using micro handheld projectors, they will project video loops of 2 similarly spelled words with juxtaposed meanings onto the crowd as they watch the above artists’ videos. The new animated text shorts will illustrate the slight spelling changes between the following pairs of words:wearisome weareone
allowed aloud
class clash
underserved undeserved
revolution resolution
stranger danger
attention tension
attract attack
canon cannon
treat threat
unclear nuclear
take cover take over
The performers will ask viewers, “How Can Art Change the World Today?”. Viewers will be guided and encouraged to post answers on Twitter with the hashtag #questiontheprojection.
