Friday night, me and the bf made our way to Flux 2011. I had never heard of it before. I just happened to stumble across the info while looking for something else. It looked interesting. I decided to go.
"Flux is the annual one-night public art event presented by Flux Projects in the streets and empty spaces of the Castleberry Hill Arts District. The evening features projections, dance, theater, music, multimedia, sound and light installations, parades, puppetry, and iron pours. Starting at 8pm with a lantern parade, the projects continue until the evening ends with iron fireworks at midnight."
It was really cool. There was something to look at everywhere. All the galleries were filled. There were pieces in crevices between buildings....and on the sidewalks...and on the people. Some of the artists used projections on abandoned buildings...on store front windows...on light poles...and fences. There was just stuff EVERYwhere. It was also cold. We missed the fireworks. Kinda disappointed about that. Fireworks are good for dates. I'm not even sure what an iron firework is. Maybe I can google. Seemed interesting.
I didn't take my regular camera...wompers...but here are a few of the pieces I liked and managed to capture with my cellphone.
