Briefs: OA Kagerou October 24, 2008
College event combines sculpture, dance
Mesa State College faculty members Toru Sugita and Matthew Lindstrom are taking their art outside.
Art professor Sugita and dance instructor Lindstrom will present “Kagerou” an artistic multimedia outdoor art installation event of sculpture, dance and video projection at 6 p.m. Saturday, Oct. 25, at 2966 Northacre Court.
Kagerou means “a dayfly” in Japanese and is a symbol of ephemeral life. The artistic goal of “Kagerou” is to illustrate the temporary, fleeting nature of all existence while encouraging the audience to ponder the future development of Grand Junction.
A large-scale, three-dimensional structure of white nylon rope will be built between architectural and natural elements at the installation site.
The dancers will begin performing at sunset. Videos will be projected onto the dancers and the structure. The accompanying music will be both traditional and contemporary from various countries.
Call 248-1300 or 255-7366 for more information. Sugita’s work can be viewed at http://www.torusugita.net.
