This month we collaborated with GEORGE HIGGS, a sound artist/composer based in Dublin, Ireland. Using the umbrella prompt of Elemental, his light, yet haunting composition led LeAnn Erickson and myself to choose Dreaming as our sub-prompt.
THE YEAR OF THE ELEMENTAL -
Tuesday, February 14, 2017
During the 2017 calendar year, Sandy Dyas and LeAnn Erickson will be pushing the collaborative mission of Homegrown Stories by seeking out international artists to complete stand-alone sound art pieces that will be paired with their independently created video pieces.
Using the umbrella theme of Elemental, the collaborators will use a focused prompt as creative inspiration. The goal of Elemental is to push the creative exploration of place and space through the development of a global collaborative effort.The first Elemental collaboration was with the sound artist Lloyd Dunn.
LLOYD DUNN IS A TAPE BEATLE AND SOUND ARTIST WHO CURRENTLY IS LIVING IN PRAGUE.
Here is our first collaboration of the new year - 2017 -- Go to Homegrown Stories --
Elemental: AIR is a collaborative work using an ominous sound track created by Lloyd Dunn, an artist and friend living in Prague. The footage was shot on the farm I grew up on in Eastern Iowa. This experimental, dark video was highly influenced by Dunn’s eerie sound track as well as my post-election mood.
