Flowing along irwin street the last few days has been a real pleasure lately, as i have seen part of the atlanta art community come together a stone’s throw away from me.
Tonight was no different except…
I stopped as my george took over. Lately there have been shipping containers labeled with a sort of soft graffitti at the intersection of krog and irwin, but i have not seen people. Lit tonight were instrumentalists, dj’s and susan bridges, owner of whitespace. I stopped and asked if i could take a few photos, as the lighting was right on, and the peculiar not so parking lot, not so industrial buildings provided a moment. Susan and i talked a bit, and she explained an installation of sound and space, called convergent frequencies. It promises to use sound, images, film, music and the surrounding neighborhoods to make a soundscape.
Who is the sound installation artist? None other than Nat Slaughter, a newly enrolled student in the SoA.
A group of students are already plotting our descent into the show on Sunday to watch how the authors navigate these complex issues. If Sunday doesn’t work the show opens friday, and it continues on saturday. Please join us in helping introduce Nat Slaughter and other artists in this experimental install.
