SHORELINE PROJECT: 3 EXPERIENCES

1 VOLUNTEERS

1,000 community members receive umbrellas at sunset on the beach and in unison they light their umbrellas to the cue of local musicians. Over the span of two hours and losing a sense of self-consciousness, the community comes together as a singular luminous organism. The exuberance of connection to each other, in dance, laughter and sheer joy, surprised us. In the spontaneity, former strangers play together, barriers forgotten.

 

2 AUDIENCE

The audience viewing from the sand, cliffs and cityscape see the image of 1,000 beautiful lights moving together on the space connecting land and sea as a deeply moving, aesthetically overwhelming event, a singular moment in time.

 

3 EXPANDED PERSPECTIVES

Aerial photography captures everyone moving as one single organism, revealing a moment of civic grace and joy… all this, upon a shared but changing shoreline.

Shoreline Project will travel the Pacific Ocean, connecting one community to the next.
