Friday, October 5th from 8-11PM, the Ninth Square of New Haven will light up with video installations, music, dance, performances and all sorts of glowy stuff. It’s the 2nd Annual L.A.M.P. Festival (Light Artists Making Places) I just took a walk around the square on Tuesday where everything is scheduled to happen, and it sounds like it is going to be an incredibly fun night of creativity, art and festivities. This is only the 2nd year in it’s existance but it has already doubled in size with the amount of artists participating and events going on that night. Shops will be staying open late, bars will be overflowing with live music and shops will decorate with storefront exhibits.
I’m proud to say that my video, ‘Soul Seasons’ will be taking over one of the buildings downtown that night at 55 Church Street in the rear lot. It’s a huge white brick building and I think it makes for a great location to exhibit. It will be right between Artspace (50 Orange St) and LAMP Headquarters at the bank (45 Church Street).
If you missed Soul Seasons at the City Canvases exhibit in Bridgeport last month, now is your chance to check it out. 1 night only. It’s free and will be a super awesome night. Come join us in New Haven & support local arts.
If you haven’t seen it yet – check out the trailer for Soul Seasons!
Thanks so much for everyone who came out to see Soul Seasons!! This piece means a lot to me for many reasons and I am very happy to have been able to share it with so many people.
The good news is, if you missed the launch, you can still catch the video. I’m planning on having a closing party for anyone who wants to come out and join me on the last night of it’s installation. A few folks asked me if I would VJ so I have decided to add that into the festivities.
Please join us Tuesday August 7th from 9-11pm at 1330 Main Street, Bridgeport, CT.
1 week until the launch of Soul Seasons! I’ve poured a tremendous amount of energy and imagination into this piece and I hope you’ll all come out and watch it with me as it goes up next Thursday. It has been a labor intensive challenge for me to do while also having a full time day job and a life that doesn’t involve being behind a computer 24/7, but it has been worth every second.
I can’t say that I’ve worked on a single piece like this in awhile where it has been 100% all my own. After months of working in my studio and obsessing over every detail I can say that still to this day that no one has seen any part of this video yet. I have not shown a soul. I have only posted a few still shots here and there in the digital world so you can see a snapshot of what is in store.
With only a week to go I’m still not sure if I will show this to anyone yet. I like the idea that it is a direct reflection of what has come out of my creativity in being completely solitary with my thoughts. Creating this piece has been meditation for me, and I hope you will love it as much as I do.
