Music Tastes GoodFound Windows
Music Tastes Good turned streets and parking lots in Downtown Long Beach into a three day music festival. My installation called, “Found Windows” invited people to walk around, through, and in between free standing, 6 foot tall panels. The panels are paired and connected by hinges, like doors without walls. The frames have windows to look through and past. Windows that look onto the windows of buildings, glasses frames, camera lenses, cell phone screens. So many windows to find. The windows also present patrons new perspectives to engage with the festival, the stage, and each other. Two frames had black lights and black light paintings. Chalking all around was encouraged. A sculpture by Rachel Oto towers above one of the frames. Ben Koffman’s light projections give the frames new life at night.
I painted the frames as homages to some of the MTG featured artists.
