Get out and enjoy the sun, Seattlites. Check out this interesting interactive performance taking place downtown at Occidental Square Park today from 11:00am to 1:30pm and 4:30pm to 7:30pm. New York’s City Mediation Crew will be doing their typical tasks slowly and deliberately, to encourage thought.
From the press release:
Clad in white coveralls emblazoned with the orange “slow moving vehicle” triangle and wide-brimmed hats, CMC workers are recognizable as they walk slowly and collect silver foil gum wrappers and affix them to the sidewalk in the heart of Occidental Square Park to create a radiant, silver mosaic circle. CMC workers will loan video cameras to the public to create “contemplative videos” for exhibition on a video exhibition and exchange website. The anonymous members of the crew include those who consider themselves “Artists”, as well as those who donʼt.
Presented by Artsparks 2010, a partnership among Seattle Parks and Recreation, 4Culture Site Specific, and the Office of Arts and Cultural Affairs. CMC is supported by, Syracuse University College of Visual and Performing Arts. Contemplative videos are supported by an Enitiative Grant from the Ewing Marion Kauffman Foundation and Syracuse University School of Information Studies.
