Head over to our Facebook page to get a recap of the whirlwind of events that took place on the Field last week.
Here’s a glimpse of what’s in store on Saturday, July 12th:
Did you know you can create a photograph without a camera? Are you fascinated by the antiquated processes of creation and creativity? Do you know what the root of the word photography is? (Hint: photo = light, graphy = writing). In this project, Nathan Lewis will provide supplies, instruction for a process that dates back to the 1840s, and inspiration for creating images with found objects using only light. Visitors will learn the mechanics of exposure and what it means to create a photograph as opposed to just take one.
This exploration of the mundane and/or the extraordinary will encourage participants to step outside of their comfort zone (or stay within it), talk to a stranger (or don’t), and do something adventurous (or un-adventurous). Share a moment of intimacy with a stranger or a friend in a world that is becoming increasingly un-intimate in this seemingly simple exercise of walking while holding someone’s hand.
In this communal dance performance, 100 choreographers will simultaneously perform a piece within a 4×4 foot space (together forming a 40×40 foot square) on the field. In this performance, the thriving dance community of the Twin Cities will come together on a large scale, and as an audience we will have the opportunity to experience the work of an array of movement artists in a unique setting.
