Paseo December Pop-up, day two

December 3 @ 11:00 am - 2:00 pm

| Free

Hi-tech and low-tech outdoor art installations invite the Taos community to step up and speak out. Paseo Project brings two Paseo Pop-ups to the community in a collaboration with Strong at Heart, supported by the LOR Foundation. The Illuminator, a projection piece created by the New York-based Illuminator Collective for the Paseo, asks the community to imagine Taos in the future. Chalkboard Chatroom invites the community to finish this sentence: “I want to live in a Taos where…”

The Illuminator, a projection piece created by the New York-based Illuminator Collective for the Paseo, asks the community to imagine Taos in the future by responding to carefully crafted, locally inspired questions. First, participants are invited into a private booth and revealed a personalized question in English, Spanish or Tewa according to their preference. Then responses are ‘illuminated’ as large scale digital graffiti with a digitally-manipulated soundtrack.

Chalkboard Chatroom invites the community to finish this sentence: “I want to live in a Taos where…” Space is provided for how each person is willing to help activate this desire. This bilingual analog installation was a huge success at the PASEO Party on the Plaza and will travel to more Paseo Pop-ups in 2018. Responses from both installations will be recorded and provided to Strong at Heart to add to its “Taos Downtown Strategy” study.
