Rural and Urban Identities

The Rural and Urban Identities Blog is up! The site catalogs the collaboration between Karen Snouffer, Jenn Figg and Matthew McCormack. This work was made possible by a generous grant from the Great Lakes College Association's New Direction initiative.

The materials used are polycarbonate film, fiberglass screen, thread, acrylic paint, projection and sound.

Making of the Community Beacons

The human generated light from these Kinetic Light Cannons travels up to a mile! An eighteen inch woofer speaker creates the power for an ultra bright 1000 lumen LED. The barrels are made from recycled 55 gallon stainless steel barrels that were originally used to ferry lemon oil across the seas. Fresnel lenses focus and project the light out of the drum.
