Occupied Warren Visual Entry Three
3 April 2018
For public art installations, April is usually an ideal time to get to work. However, since the project meet-up on March 17th, the weather has been unfavorable for the Occupied Warren project. Low temperatures outside, means even lower temperatures inside the heatless house. Between the snow, rain, and overall dreary days, for some artist, it hasn’t been the most inspirational time to create art. Understandably.
Undeterred by the weather, Bill Barron arrived focused and with equipment in hand. When I got the call that Bill would be going to the project site, I was shocked. Personally, I wouldn’t have come outside on this day… the couch, Netflix, Twizzlers, and Cherry Fanta would’ve been on my agenda.
Today was part of Bill’s pre-production phase involving a heavy dose of taking measurements and tracing. He shared his concept for the room and the overall process. Some of which will be done offsite. Although the lighting in the room wasn’t optimal from a photographic standpoint, I used both my camera’s flash and Bill’s headlamp as my light source as he wore it and worked.
The forecast calls for better temperatures. Let’s hope so. May is right around the corner.
