Now that 34 has launched and I have 1m40s to breathe, I wanted to take a quick moment to highlight SEEN/UNSEEN and the summer of performances taking place on Spectacle Island as a part of the Isles Arts Initiative.

In walks 34, the Isles Arts Initiative‘s beacon on land.

Call for Art: Islands on the Edge

Courtesy of Boston Public Library

“Since their ancient formation by rising sea level, the Boston Harbor Islands have literally been on the edge of the continent, places where land meets sea. With the growth of Boston and its surrounding communities, the islands came to be unusual for their lack of inhabitants and development at the edge of a major metropolitan area. Figuratively, the Boston Harbor Islands have often been on the ‘edge of society’: places used to isolate people, institutions, and activities.”

The Isles Arts Initiative

The wait is over. 

“This summer, in coordination with the Boston Harbor Island Alliance, FLUX. Boston, the National Park Service, the Department of Conservation and Recreation, Greenovate Boston, and the Boston Art Commission, the Isles Arts Initiative (IAI) will transform the Boston Harbor Islands into a canvas primed for artistic activation and social engagement. Taking shape across two islands and featuring an accompanying gallery exhibition in downtown Boston, IAI encourages visitors to reconnect with Boston Harbor, creating intimate connections to the water while also raising awareness of climate change through excellent artistic installations.”

All At Once

“Living is like tearing through a museum. Not until later do you really start absorbing what you saw, thinking about it, looking it up in a book, and remembering – because you can’t take it in all at once.” – A. Hepburn

Update: The sleepless nights were not in vain.

Formal announcement coming soon!

Hold My Calls: IAI 2015 Edition

As some of you already know, the past year and a half has been dedicated to getting a project in our fair city off the ground, and I am now approaching a critical point in that process where big ideas are translated into realities.

I have been giving 110% this entire time, but I now need to summon 150% for the next month or so to ensure these sleepless nights were not in vain.

I may even need to crop up again and ask for your help, dear readers, but in the interim -please send all positive juju my way.

Really, I wanted to take this moment to pop out of my molehill and say hello, and reassure you that FLUX. is not going anywhere.

Just know I’m here in the background, standing topless on a podium and brandishing the french flag (it just feels right), fighting the good fight.

More soon. ♥
