I've been going through 12 hours of amazing video from the event that the team captured over four days. I can't wait to share the gems with you. We picked up the Color Box from the Young Brother's shipping container today, along with some of the tikis that Maui had loaned to Alchemeyez. The Color Box is back on Maui. (Photo at the pier attached below.)
For those of you on Maui (sorry mainlanders), we'll be hosting a couple of backer only Color Box exhibitions in the next week (email me if you are interested) and intend to install the Color Box at the Maui Film Festival next month.
Video coming soon! Michael, Gina, Ben and Scott all did a tremendous job capturing awesome moments in the box. So much great video! And it's taking some time to peruse. Perhaps, I'll post some raw clips, but for now, the best feed of documentation is on the facebook page:
Also, your prizes. I expect the screensaver to go out next week and the PDF on creating your own Color Box to be out next month. For you bigger backers, I'll call in the next week to talk about your vision-thru-color Fine Art Work.
And before I go, I just wanted to send out a thank you to the core team that spent four days in action.
Scott Provonsha: You built the boxes to house the projectors. You created visuals, you became a VJ at Alchemeyez, and you busted your ass and were there when I needed you. You were a core ninja, going above and beyond the call. You are a wealth of skills and knowledge. So much enjoyed and appreciated your friendship on this trip.
Ben Holt: You created SOURCE, without which there might be no Color Box. SOURCE: The arts-festival as arts-incubator. Your vision and ability to see a complete picture is admirable and rare. I've never worked with anyone so dedicated to a beautiful vision as you are. You were a prime ninja: who knew when you would appear and if you'd be seen, but your mark was incredible. Nuff said.
Gina Fong: Coming out of nowhere, coming from my San Francisco Bay Area tribe that I moved away from seven years ago. You were on point with conversations in the morning helping to refine, define and plan to capture the essence and intention of the Color Box. You landed and activated immediately.You are clearly visionary in your artistic intent and insight. I look forward to supporting you and can't wait to see how you bring forth your work with mandalas.
Michael Ryals: Last but not least, perhaps the original Color Box homie. You have been a part of this since the beginning. Your art, your ideas, your projectors, your presence, geez, your VGA cables, all have been integral to the evolution of this project. You've got your own art portfolio that is well worth seeing and I have appreciated your support all along. You got the main stage for your work, live streamed no less, and, you held it down in the box with visuals people loved when the rest of us were crashing. You were always checking in to see what else we had to do. That was important.
Thank you Michael, Gina, Ben and Scott.
And with that, I am off to edit video of the Color Box at Alchemeyez. Right now, the piece is being contextualized as if it is 1930, and The Color Box at Alchemeyez is something of the future.
Thank you again for backing this project. It truly could not have happened without you and it has been such a thrill to be invested with you in it's manifestation.
