Saturday video: Sunbreak, sculpture

In case you missed the spectacular sunbreaks while, oh, say, indoors watching The Game … above, we present a snippet of video from Beach Drive, as the sun held court over Vashon. Below, we dropped by the Pigeon Point Park environmental-restoration work party (video preview here) and while the Nature Consortium folks and their volunteers were just getting going, we found artist Aaron Voronoff already well into the process of making an ever-evolving sculpture out of trash and plant debris that work-party participants were collecting:

Voronoff’s creation was to be disposed of later, by the way. The Nature Consortium tells us that most of its work parties feature environmental entertainment like this, with artists, musicians, etc.

    I’m inspired! What a fun way to deal with spring clean-up this year in the yard; might even encourage kids to find more to add to the sculpture :) While I hope we don’t find an umbrella, I might be able to come up with one of those plastic chairs! Thanks Aaron!

    I hope to do more community clean up projects where the trash becomes temporary sculpture, I think this is an interesting way to stir up dialogue about littering and the meaning of art or not/art and impermanence in our society today.
    Thanks for posting this video!

Sorry, comment time is over.
