The things that keep me going in these crazy times are my work, my friends and family. Our Artists Rapid Response Team! has been in great demand since the fall, with the increased activism on every front. The last couple of weeks climate change, health care and immigration related banners have been displayed in town halls, marches, galleries and store fronts.
LumenARRT! projects have been difficult to perform lately due to weather but see info below from the website for a glimpse what’s happening with building projections. I am involved with
and inspired by the team of artists I work with at LumenARRT! I am learning new things about video projection, creating video animation from Anita Clearfield and Geoffrey Leighton. Mostly, my husband Richard and I are hard working crew helping to set up and take down equipment.
LumenARRT! is a project of the Artists Rapid Response Team (ARRT!). We work through the Union of Maine Visual Artists (UMVA) to advocate for artists and further the work of progressive non-profits in the state of Maine. Our video projections create a visual voice for these organizations and like electronic graffiti, bring awareness to issues of social, political and environmental justice.
Our latest video projection, “Air Story,” reminds people that climate change is an undisputed fact among scientists and that there are many toxic substances in our air. The brief video projections will be showing at venues throughout Maine in 2017. Stay tuned for the next showing! You can see videos of some of our projections at Lumenarrt.org
An interactive component will allow viewers to find out the air quality in their zip code. Try it now! Visit the 10Green project at the University of Maine –> http://10green.org/ #WhatsYourBreathableNumber
