Community-based, interactive public art project, 2018
Felix Obelix: concept, video, & music composition, performance, recording
Collaborators: Douglas Vuncannon (photography), Marc Maximov (event assistance)
Sponsored by: Downtown Durham, Inc.
In this interactive public art project, attendees were paired with a stranger and given five minutes to find the most unusual thing they had in common with that stranger. Then, my collaborator Douglas Vuncannon took their photographs, with their ‘most unusual thing’ written on a board. I then aggregated the photographs into a video, for which I wrote and recorded an original musical score. This community project was selected for Downtown Durham, Inc.’s inaugural Public Space Project.
The video of the public art/community project was also projected at the Durham Arts Council in March 2019.
