It sounds like the premise for an artsy version of The Real World: the true story of eight artists from around the countryâand the worldâchosen to live together on a remote island and have their work documented to see what happens when people stop being polite and start producing real, nature-inspired art.
Or, as Nacogdoches, Texas-based photographer Robbie Lacomb puts it: âItâs a big multimedia presentation.â
That presentation is The Tides Project, a venture that incorporates music, film, art and poetry into a live, cross-platform event held this Sunday at the Institute of American Indian Artsâ LTC Auditorium.
Lacomb calls the collective work developed over a sequestered period of five weeks last summer âpretty remarkable.â
âItâs the place in all of the world that has both the highest and the lowest tides,â the photog says of the location, Great Cranberry Island in Maine. âWe were living on location and responding to nature as it was dictated by those tides,â she says.
