Posted on 06/08/17 No Comments

CHARLESTON, SC –  To continue the conversation that started on the opening night of “Wade in the Water,” artist John Duckworth will host an informal gathering and discussion at  Redux. To learn what’s in store for the groundbreaking smartphone technology used in the installation and to view Duckworth’s recent works on display at Redux, join the artist on Tuesday, June 13, 2017 at 6:30 p.m.

“Wade in the Water” is a large-scale, site-specific art installation presented by Enough Pie and housed in a 16,000 warehouse on  King Street which is the new home of Redux. The installation consists of three distinctly unique audio zones intended to highlight humankind’s intimate and interdependent relationship with the natural world – linking the flooded streets of Charleston SC with the melting glaciers of Antarctica through an audio-visual time-based experience.

The installation is a collaborative community effort, including: Quentin Baxter, Lee Barbour, John Gaulden, Garrett Budds, Leigh Webber, Ann Caldwell and the Magnolia Singers, Kevin Harrison and Nameless Numberhead.  The app was designed by Josh Kopeck from ECHOES from England. Digital mapping was done by Austin Schulz, lighting and layout by Technical Event Company. For more information, visit www.wadeinthewater.org.

Redux is located at 1056 King Street, Charleston, SC. Enjoy light refreshments and performance by Ann Caldwell and the Magnolia Singers. Please support the project with a suggested donation of $100 or more.  Donations can be made at the event or on the event page https://www.eventbrite.com/e/conversation-with-artist-john-duckworth-tickets-35191388390.
