BIM Process Photos

BIM is currently workshopping their 2012 production, a tour that will take place in fishing enclaves along the Mediterranean coast of Lebanon. They’ve been posting some really beuatiful site and process photos to their blog. I might be designing a floating piece for them sometime next year!

And So, Like Water, We Flow.

I love these slow exposure photographs by Alexey Titarenko. I found them in a beautifully composed post by Robert Krulwich about how the rush of a crowd is similar to the flow of water. “We’re two-thirds water, after all.” They strangely remind me of tsunami photos … or the smoke monster from Lost.

Speaking of water, I may have the chance to work with a Lebanese site-specific theater group called (B)IM, or (Books) In Motion. I met with cofounder Denise Maroney recently to discuss a collaboration. (B)IM is currently working on a tour slated for 2012, which will take place in fishing enclaves along the coast of Lebanon. They are devising a story that will involve movement, puppets and live music. The play will take place in and out of water and touch upon themes of fishermen, sea creatures and the Mediterranean. The performance will bring awareness to major problems in Lebanon: the pollution of the marine environment, the lack of recycling and excessive waste.
