Gravity Fed: Futurefarmers Procession
Sunday June 11 – 10:00am-noon
We think of two words: Gravity and Fed.
Gravity gives weight to physical objects.
We cannot see gravity,
only the things moved by gravity.
Gravity has no color,
no sound and no meaning
except when two or more matter(s)
come together and connect.
Futurefarmers is a diverse group of multidisciplinary artists who create art installations and performance. This internationally-acclaimed group will construct a series of small stages built on custom wheelbarrows at the Milk and Honey Farm. These mobile stages will move in a procession through the farm as the artists present a series of performances and interactive activities along the way, culminating in an art installation that will remain on view for the duration of the project. Take part in this procession and have a hand in shaping the final art installation.
Milk and Honey Farm draws from the flowing waters of South Boulder Creek which originates 11,866 feet above sea level along the continental divide, and moves through a complex watershed to the Gulf of Mexico. Futurefarmers used the idea of gravity, which helps water reach the farm, as a starting point, and invited five artists including Lukaza Branfman-Verissimo, artist, (Oakland, CA), Camille Dungy, poet, (Fort Collins, CO), Sanam Emami & Del Harrow, artists, (Fort Collins, CO) and Oscar VanGeertruyden, artist, (Belgium), to meditate on this idea of Gravity Fed. An edition of printed materials have been made to take away and are available by the main signage kiosk.
