• A Photographer’s Tour at DUMBO Arts Festival

    Priceless Views from the DUMBO Arts Festival
    Priceless Views from the DUMBO Arts Festival

    Well, another DUMBO Arts Festival here and gone. One of my favorite events during the year seemed to be much more crowded than previous years.

    One of my favorite pieces, an art installation by the SAWCC (South Asian Women’s Creative Collective) consisted of labeled numerical pennies placed over colorful cobblestones. Each cobblestone was represented by an sentence created to evoke an emotive response. I picked “memories flood in” and the number that corresponded with that sentence was the characteristic “desperate”. Well, maybe I was a bit desperate to see more art…

    Smack Mellon Gallery presented two Brooklyn-based artists. Shana Moulton’s video installation Morphing Essence Syndrome was an immersive experience that tackles restless leg syndrome, as well as others kinds of syndromes.  Bryan Zanisnik’s site-specific installation Meadowlands Picaresque transforms the back gallery into a semi performance/still life installation.

    Macaron , a sculpture by Daisuke Kiyomiya located at Brooklyn Bridge Park was fun and definitely put a smile on my face!

    I visited Tom Fruin, the creator of the gorgeous water tower on top of 20 Jay Street, that lights up the skies over DUMBO, and in turn defines the synthesis of form, function and beauty. He was happy to show me some of his new work, which was best seen with the lights off.

    All in all, a good time had by all! See you next year in DUMBO! – Olya
