The Umbrellas event - 3rd and final project of the contemprary Art course
Time : 8th and 9th of may 2010
Place : Limerick city center - Catherine Street
In Details :
it was the last project for this course that combine both masters students from Music technology & Interactive media, in a Creative Piece of interaction experience between physical art and audiences.
To tell the truth we were horrified at the start from the idea, and we thought its gonna be a big massive disaster, as a lot of us not into choreography or dancing beside the time limit.
Thanx for Triona our coordinator, she really started to grab us all together to start dealing with it, Jill worked on creating the movements and the choreography, it was simple but beautiful, music tech guys decided to contribute in their own specialty "MUSIC" and they did great job based on row material like empty small and big water bottles and some of them were filled with small pebbles and lette from our class did the big Drum.
Triona got black papers as an idea to have face masks and the whole class contribute in making the masks and it was really brilliant.
i was in charge of video shooting the whole event with two music tech. guys, Graeme and peter " the two who did the beautiful music piece of the Wind section from the last project.
The event was a success, the people in the street really were so curious about it and as far as i noticed, most of the audience waited to watch the whole event till the end, and its great that you can see the people giving the umbrella group their imaginary boundaries so they can move freely without interference from them" the audience ".
was Brilliant work and a great experience to be involved like this with the people, i had so much audience experiences but as a theater show and audience sitting in the specif places, never been like this in public. it was a lovely feeling and weird at the same time.
here some pictures of the event.
the video is coming soon
