Vote 0 Votes

Professors Diane Willow, U of MN and Liu Xuguang, Beijing Film Academy, are working with their respective students on the collaborative project: Seeking what a river carries for the Northern Spark Art Festival. The young artists from Beijing and Minneapolis will collaborate on a project that uses mobile technology to exchange in-the-moment media from artists along the daylight Yellow River in China and the nighttime festivities along the Mississippi River in Minneapolis. During the festival, a continuous stream of in-the-moment video, audio, photos and text from the Yellow River and the Mississippi River will be projected onto the facade of the Weisman Art Museum.
