Along side of Freewaves’ artist videos, Anne Bray and friends of Freewaves, Vera Makianich, Daniel Garcia and Cindy Ly Rozas will show micro projections on attendees and surfaces throughout Side Street Projects. Using micro handheld projectors, they will project video loops of 2 similarly spelled words with juxtaposed meanings onto the crowd as they watch the above artists’ videos.
The question is HOW CAN ART CHANGE THE WORLD TODAY? We encourage you to post answers on Twitter with the hashtag #questiontheprojection. All responses will be projected on Side Street’s back wall creating a communal feed of reactions. Stickers with social media handle and hashtag will be handed out
