ARTICLE DESCRIPTION:

The Arts in Nature Festival presented by the Nature Consortium took advantage of the very warm day on Saturday to present numerous art installations, musical performances and opportunities to enjoy the setting at Camp Long.
Interaction ranges from using duct tape-wrapped chopsticks to hammer out a jam on Benson Smith’s “Junk Chime” to physically entering Installation Artist Markel Uriu’s “Bowers” to climbing aboard the converted RV that is YAMS, the Yesler Arts Mobile Studio providing hands-on art and craft making for all.

A perfect example of the “arts in nature” concept encouraging artists and audience members to engage in active participation is the piece Inner Galactic. Created by Maya Soto (choreographer) + Nico Tower (composer/multidisciplinary artist). The “Innernauts” explore the poetry of geology and the magic of time and sediment. They transform a cabin into a fantastical moon-like cave of crystals, craters, stalagmites, shadows and light representing deep matters of the heart using light + shadow boxes, visual design/art installation and original sound composition to create a new interactive sound environment. Visitors contribute through writing and sound-making.
