LumenARRT! Codfish Funeral Procession from Geoffrey Leighton on Vimeo.
Here’s a preview of Lumenarrt‘s codfish funeral procession projection that will parade around the buildings on Main Street just after sundown during Fringe Fest. As climate change increases the temperature of the Gulf of Maine, the historically plentiful cod is disappearing. This video installation will raise awareness by staging a “codfish funeral procession” to encourage a worldwide mobilization before the Global Climate Summit in San Francisco on September 12. Lumenarrt is a project of the ARRT, Artists Rapid Response Team. ARRT works through the Union of Maine Visual Artists (UMVA) to advocate for artists and further the work of progressive non-profits in the state of Maine. Our video projections create a visual voice for these organizations and like electronic graffiti, bring awareness to issues of social, political and environmental justice.
