It sounds like the premise for an artsy version of The Real World: the true story of eight artists from around the countryâ€”and the worldâ€”chosen 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: â€śItâ€™s a big multimedia presentation.â€ť
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 â€śpretty remarkable.â€ť
â€śItâ€™s the place in all of the world that has both the highest and the lowest tides,â€ť the photog says of the location, Great Cranberry Island in Maine. â€śWe were living on location and responding to nature as it was dictated by those tides,â€ť she says.
