Documenting the life cycle of the creature requires regular photographs from multiple perspectives. You can contribute to the effort and to the final video by downloading and running Eyes, which harnesses your iSight to add images to our time lapse film. You can download the application here.
Once downloaded, first connect to the wireless network named GROW, then push Command-n to open a new Finder window. In the leftmost frame, click on ‘mobile’s Macbook’, then on the folder easy_public. This is where you will dump your iSight pictures. Now launch Eyes. Position your camera and click on the big square to start uploading images. Congratulations, you have just made art.
Where: the playground and surrounding space at India Point Park, Providence, RI, USA
When: 4 pm, Tuesday, October 13th
Who: Everyone and Anyone
What: An invitation for collaboration. A collective exploration of movement, sound and play. Bring your sounds and your bodies and reinvestigate structures of play, find playmates and cocreators, witness and participate in a spontaneous and fleeting experience in a multidimensional public outdoor playscape. Climb. Jump. Linger. Defy. Ask questions. Move.
“and” is part of a week of BUME events!
Audience members are welcome throughout, but the culminating performance explosion will occur on: Thursday, Oct. 8th, 8pm
In the PW Upspace
The happening is a continuous, 24-hour event, a performance that happens while people are eating, sleeping, waking, walking, sighing, and dreaming. Performers sign up for one-hour slots. The audience is free to enter and exit the room over the course of the 24 hours. A final performance will occur during the last hour of the show.
Some notes for performers
What’s available for you: stage, space, electric outlets, pair of floodlights, booth from which you can play music from your laptop/iPod
What you should bring: props, iPod/laptop, amps, instruments, equipment, bodies, and anything essential to your performance
What will happen: Performers come 10 minutes before their allotted time slot to set up necessary equipment and arrange the audience’s chairs or cushions as they see fit. At the turn of the hour, (the) old performer(s) exits the stage [marked out with tape] and (the) new performer(s) enters, all performers simultaneously saying “and” as the transition occurs. The new performer creates, plays, moves, builds, sings, etc. for an hour and the cycle begins again.
“Performance” is a large, encompassing word, and we would like to largely encompass the variety of potential performers at Brown. We invite artists of all kinds whose work involves a performative quality. You could DJ, build a sculpture, dance in a group, eat dinner, or recite love poetry to a block of cheese. Et cetera.
We will document parts of every hour of the 24 hours, and will not reproduce or distribute the material without all the performers’ permission.
Please sign up at http://doodle.com/wcx4f87h4z4ypg9a. When filling out the “your name” entry, please enter your name, what you might do, and your e-mail address so we can contact you.
We’re very excited to see what comes out of this event. Please pass this along to anyone you think might be interested, and contact us with any questions!
Early Tuesday morning, October 6th, a seed will be planted on the main green.
By the time classes start, the seed will have sprouted, and will start to grow. Our goal is to observe, feed and ultimately destroy the ungainly creature as it lives out its short and nonsensical life. Unlike most plants, which rely on the sun’s light for energy, this organism consumes bits of college life garbage–beer cans, old blankets, worn out clothes, torn posters, broken chairs, unused books–slowly incorporating them into its ever-evolving exoskeleton. It is a rare opportunity to see such a creature in the wild, so we want to encourage it to grow and develop as much as possible.
You can help by bringing us material to feed to the creature; no matter how bizarre or unwieldy the food source the creature will happily devour it. In return, we will give you free cookies, as well as information on where to find other unique and unexpected performance art courtesy of BUME.
We have just awoken to discover that we are an insect.
