Medellin / Whidbey Island 2017-2019
H20p (H20project) was developed in Medellín, Colombia and on Whidbey Island, USA together with an international audience through networks of family and friends.
The intention of the project was the provocation of artistic collaborations through play, and the link between artists and an audience to build collaborative works across borders, acknowledging the element that composes us all, water.
I DON'T KNOW WHAT IT MEANS
DO YOU KNOW?
Thinking about water:
What title would you give
to this image?
En pensant á l'eau:
Quel titre donnerais-tu
à cette image?

The standing monkey inspired by a white wall in Medellín
Luis Javier Betancur Noreña
Woman in empty embrace
respecting the past
The gift of the fragile etoffe
I'm ready.... almost
Something about direction
I swear it was right there
give and take
PETALS AND AN ABSENT ROSE
Snake charmer / Hither slither
human on concrete
The birth of the silver ratio
down in the water, up dry
Le plongeon inversé
The final image is the invitation to an audience to give their caption to the photo of the primus gestu. From each title offered, a complete choreography will be born, composed of new gestures coming from the titles offered by the public. This exchange transforms the public itself into an artistic collaborator.
The following image shows the twenty titles collected from 8 different countries with the name and country of each author.
The music video was made in collaboration with Elijah Moore for the song Bubble by Ashley Eriksson and LAKE the band. Other contributors to the production were Shannon McKinnon (drone video), Marit Schmidt (camera 2 images), Shanti Sivadas (choreography sequence consultation), Olisa Enrico and Maureen Freehill "MoMo" (movement consultation), Brittan Drake ("light art") and Drew Christie (overlay effects).
