Jillian Jetton and I have been working with Byron Karabotsos on a video about the four River Charrette events that functioned in relationship to the three phases of weekly events at the Washington Avenue Pier.
In looking through this footage I was moved by just how much happened, and the hugely different expressions that the work took as we applied the discoveries that were evolving from the scores of the weekly events at the pier to the River Charrette sites. Collaborations with Eiko Otake, Billy Dufala, Martha McDonald and my mom, Carolyn Brick happened along the Schuylkill and Delaware Rivers in an underground swimming pool, a former super-fund clean-up site, and the historic gardens of Bartram’s Garden and Andalusia. To read more about each event, visit the River Charrette page or the River Charrette category on Quiet News.
With many thanks to documentary filmmaker Byron Karabatsos, I am hoping that this video gives a sense of the diverse manifestations of this work as it migrated away from our weekly practice at the Washington Avenue Pier.
