From Water - June 2019

In June 2019 From Water  is taking to Lake Ontario flying a 750 square foot projection screen which is held in place by four canoeists accompanied by musicians and singers on the shoreline.We are collaborating with Queens Film and Media studies and Cultural Studies programs and the Modern Fuel.

The artists will respond to Lake Ontario, and by extension connected to all of the other Great Lakes and their water ways. Skeye Projects and the video artists and musicians will honor the lake’s history, its sustaining resources, its spiritual significance for both First Nations and European peoples.

Like R. Murray Schafer’s, Wilderness Lake, the Skeye soundscape engages with the movement of the lake, the wind from the lake.The outside environment and wind from the lake will have a strong effect in how the audience may experience the sound.
