TAKE 5: Five Questions for blog posts from activity organizers on Open Field this summer
Name: Letters VS. Numbers
Occupation: LVN is an artist collective based throughout the world which experiments across all media through performance and presentation.
Open Field Activity: Summerize – A Letters vs. Numbers Music Video
Description: Become part of Letters VS. Numbers! Direct, film, and perform in a music video for the song “A Pleasure.” Together, we will collectively make a music video by re-creating the quintessential activities for an ideal summer past. There will be music, bonfires, first kisses, lawn-games, beach balls, fort-building, and last dances. The evening promises to be true temporal dislocation!
Performers will be asked to wear silver LVN masks upon arrival and, using whatever they bring to Open Field, to film and photograph the event. Video, digital, flip, pinhole, and cell phone cameras are encouraged!! This will allow us all to become both performer and documenter on our very own nostalgia trip.
Performers can then upload their footage onto LVN’s vimeo account. The collective imagery will be edited together: creating a time capsule that encloses the summery dreams we don’t want to end.
Date of Activity: Thursday, August 11, 7-9pm
