I had heard a comment made by an on-air KFAI radio personality that the band Pert Near Sandstone was to play in the Sculpture Garden. I checked the Walker Art Center’s website and found the additional information and details. I noticed that the performance was part of an entire day of family programing. Pret’ near perfect for a destination for a bike ride. And I had little doubt that there would be some material to photograph. I present here some stills of the Open Map project.
Open Map 10 am–3 pm Walker Open Field Where do you go to enjoy yourself in the Twin Cities? Artist Susan Armington leads the creation of a gigantic collective map on the Open Field where you will make a 3D model of your favorite spot! Add yourself to others’ creations and share stories about your experiences and adventures around the Metro. —from the Walker Art Center’s website
On the green vertical poles, different street intersections were inscribed. No coordinate system was applied with any enforcement, but landmarks began to appear with close approximation to others that were vaguely neighboring but definitely not to scale.
I was informed by the creator’s assistant that they had to guess the approximate location of the IDS Tower in relation to the Twins Target Field.
A theme I love to keep exploring, Kites over Lake Harriet.
