(NEW DATE) JULY 4: NO COLOR GAME | BERDSCARNIVAL (MARAYA LOPEZ)
"No Color Game" is what the artist defines as a “strategy” (an open-ended, shapeshifting object or experience). In this case, "No Color Game" takes on the form of a site-specific ephemeral project where the artist inserts herself into society and creates subtle provocations).
Not quite a performance or installation a strategy is an area between reality and fiction, play and intellect, fragility and crudeness. The strategy will serve as an artist experimental hub during the day; active game at night called “No Color Game” (similar to a carnival game). Over the course of the day Berdscarnival (Maraya Lopez) will make props, engage with the public and read impromptu poetry inspired by her surroundings.
The public will be asked to contemplate what DUMBO would look like with no color. Their answers will help the artist visualize the “No Color Game” which will start in the evening from 7PM-9PM. They will also be encouraged to partake in a live Instagram feed to help document the project and will become an active participant.
Furthermore, local sound from DUMBO and Coney Island will be combined with other sound to create a thought provoking and disorienting experience for the viewer.
By Berdscarnival (Maraya Lopez). Soundtrack in collaboration with Harvey “Ras(X)” Lackey.
