The HUman element. Today was the first official photo session for the HUman element project for the "mur-all" which will be installed in Santa Rosa. It was terribly exciting, and also anxiety producing, since I was using a new method to obtain and produce the element blocks for the mural. I was not sure how the people and the technology would mesh with each other. And, whether people would participate during a pandemic on an afternoon which exceeded 100 degrees.
I was delightfully surprised to have a leisurely stream of participants. Which, allowed me to tweak and refine the process with ease. It also gave me ample time to chat/spend some time with each participant. And later, to troubleshoot and strategize about ways to improve public engagement.
All thinks considered, it was a great way to spend my BIRTHDAY!
Thanks to the city of Santa Rosa and Creative Sonoma for this opportunity!
Here are a few photos of participants....
