FLOW is an event series produced by the Coaction lab in association with the Intermedia MFA and New Media undergraduate programs at the University of Maine, This event series is focused on water as a precious resource that connects and supports the diverse range of living systems on our planet. This years event is in collaboration with the SCANZ 2017 Energy + Ocean, international biennial and Intercreate, an organization exploring art, science, culture & technology. Last year’s event took place at the Thomas Hill Standpipe in Bangor ME and this years FLOW Fort Knox event will take place on June 24th 2017 at the historic Fort Knox and Penobscot Narrows Bridge and Observatory in Prospect ME, across the Penobscot Bay from Bucksport ME.
Fort Knox, a civil war era fort that never saw battle, serves as a ripe metaphor for exploring the unique history of this location near the mouth of the Penobscot bay. The Penobscot river is the longest and most extensive river in the state of Maine and is home to the Penobscot Nation. We will creatively explore the deep roots of this historic site as well as the unique architectural features of Fort Knox and nearby Penobscot Narrows Bridge and Observatory. An array of artists, scientists, historians and local cultural groups are invited to participate and collaborate to create a multi-sensory / multi-perspective experience. Sculpture, Installation, Dance, Performance, Music / Sound, New Media, Projection Mapping and many other hybrid art forms will be included in FLOW 2017.
