Louise messaged me this photo of the yarrow emerging on the morning on the Public View…
Better late than never…
Some of the people who had been involved in the events, gathered over the evening at the summit.
Several of us were broadcasting the event via Periscope and others who had been involved but couldn’t be there in person ‘hopped on’…
Some people managed both- to be there at a distance and then join in person…
Some of the sharing paraphernalia…
People brought Champagne and flowers
The Covenant of Salt, ‘Twitter’ chocolates, and Mystic Writing pads were enjoyed by many… even those who claimed no artistic talent!
Games had unexpected winners..or no winners at all depending on the play.
People were Periscoping people Periscoping people Periscoping ………etc
Clara Duran was taking photos of the Summer Show in Camberwell at the same time, and watching proceedings on Periscope on Jonathan’s phone ( see later)
I hadn’t realised that they had also announced Clara and my Residency Award in Norway at the award ceremony.
Here are images of some of the group’s work : Clara, Tristan ( our work has some similarities..) Pete ( who I have still never met!), Pascale, Donald, Yvonne and Sharon
Some examples of the simultaneous images taken and simultaneous events ( if the clocks on our phones and cameras and image files are to be believed ) in Camberwell and on Crouch Hill.
Below are some screen shots which show the involvement of the Periscope audience when I went to find Clare Carswell, who also took many of the documentation photos – Thanks Clare)
She had been following proceedings on the phone but then drove to the Hill to try to find us.
I had thought of putting up signs but it would have changed the event and the Happenstance element for people who hadn’t had direct invitations
Also it was fun to see people randomly wandering around, getting lost, finding each other, talking to strangers, and eventually finding us at the summit!
‘ I’ve never seen so many Lost People!’ – Thanks JimStr
People made it to the top, physically and via our Live streams.
Drawing time is Catherine Lette, who was documenting her visit to the Summer Show Private View in Wilson Road, Camberwell and simultaneous experience of Crouch Hill, Public View and some of my work in the process
The Screen shots below are from my Stream
These are from Catherine’s @drawingtime phone and stream
These are from Sharon Bertram’s
Here’s an example of chat during the stream…Anything from dog snacks to Brexit
Which at least gives it some time-reference.
Importantly, people visiting the Show did seem to be accessing the Periscope Broadcasts at least via the Twitter feed from the Username on the Chocolates!
[EDIT 21st July: There were large numbers in the LiveStream Audience by the end of the Show – over 700 for the last broadcast ]
Finishing with some amusing screen shot showing middle-ages people whth Glo=Stick necklaces.
I’ll never forget wending our way down the Hill carrying the tent etc, winding through the woodland in the dusk, Glo-necklaces bobbing up and down in the distance…Sadly not on the Broadcast
The event went well with some good interaction and a reasonable audience in both ‘locations’, from 30- 159 on the stream…not that I’m counting! ( Ha!)
