Art on the Canal

By

Last weekend we headed for Scottsdale, AZ for the Canal Convergence sponsored by the Scottsdale Public Art and the Salt River Project.  Our son Aaron and his wife Kiori of Purring Tiger had an amazing light and sound show called Micro-Double Helix.  The interactive technology of this project is far beyond my comprehension but the human interaction and delight was easy to observe.

The exhibit was for all ages as illustrated by this baby fascinated by touching the Micro globe to produce sound and light.

Over 200 Micro globes were installed over the canal footbridge.  Visitors could stroll through the display and activate each Micro.  Watching the expression and interaction of the crowd was my favorite part!  Over 50,000 people visited the Canal Convergence.  Here is a drone video of Micro-Double Helix.

Well done, Aaron and Kiori!  Congratulations!

Kiori and Aaron visiting another Canal Convergence exhibit, Light Origami. This was an human size kaleidoscope that invites you to enter its 300 mirror paneled dome to experience the change of lights and images.

Our immersion into the arts since relocating to Arizona has been exciting.  To have our own son exhibit nearby was wonderful.

Until next time…thanks for following!
