Jennifer Wen Ma's, Bending the Arc, is public art at its best: a site-specific concept, dreamed into by a world-class contemporary artist, inspired by the words of one of history's most important leaders, a creative collaboration, the ultimate realization of which, happens only with the participation of the audience, live, on-site, and in the moment!
Ma conceived the artistic concept, Jason Freeman, Anna Xambó & Gerard Roma designed the audio software, "Granular Sampler," to make the voice component possible, Guillermo Acevedo programmed the graphics software to animate the artwork, and Jeryl Bright composed a new song, "Bending the Arc," for the project's finale (at midnight on November 7th). All of these things, together with the participation of the Flux Night audience, will work to bend Ma's projected flat-line into an arc, lift the arc into the sky, and send it off into the stars (towards justice)...
Atlanta (and beyond), show us you have a pulse, help us breath life into the flat-line:
