Aqua Alta Mobile Art Project

on August 14, 2009

Think art can only be paintings, drawings or sculptures? Think again!!


On Tuesday, August 18th from 1:30-4:30 p.m. the Peace Dale Library will be hosting the Aqua Alta Mobile Art Project. This project presents contemporary artwork within the space of a 16-foot box truck. The first installation will be a sound installation by internationally exhibited artist, China Blue.

China Blue’s recordings are made with specialized audio equipment including hydrophone arrays and seismic microphones. The work captures the unique sounds of the water and the creatures of Providence’s canals and Narragansett Bay. Sounds are sampled from the water’s edge, and around and under the gondolas in the lagoons. This work was inspired by the effects of global warming on the environment, both under and above the surface of the water. Visitors will be able to stand or sit on comfortable benches inside of the truck to experience the exhibit.
