Bright Lights: Wander, Wonder Wilderness with VMA faculty Paul Turano
7:00 pm - 9:00 pm
Bright Family Screening Room
A presentation on the yet-to-be launched interactive project by director (and VMA professor) Paul Turano.
The human experience of nature through urban wilds is multifaceted, as it can involve not just our appreciation of plants, trees, animals, birds, and phenomena of light and weather, but the more personal interactions and internal ruminations that these environments inspire. These excursions into nature are also a journey through history, as the landscape contains the residue and evidence of previous eras. Wander, Wonder, Wilderness will capture how a simple walk through an urban wild can provide an opportunity to engage with the philosophical, socio-cultural, and economic complexity of the ever-changing relationship of humans to the wilderness.
A companion interactive component of this transmedia project will allow viewer/participants to visit a wide range of natural locations in the greater Boston area and be provided with an opportunity to both experience dynamic content and create their own – with text, sound, and image – utilizing their smartphone devices.
