A REVIEW OF FLOW:

Mountain Time Art’s pilot public art project, FLOW, lit up Bozeman’s Story Mill for 2 nights in August. Over 500 people convened by foot, bike and shuttle and sat on the iconic 19th-20th C industrial site to experience a large-scale video and sound installation projected on 3 mill buildings. Moving images were a montage of valley scenes, animated historic photos and filmed local residents, including voices and original music on the theme of water, life and industry from the time of the first peoples to the present. On the second night, nature put on a show of a gathering storm with flashing lights, rumbles, and gusty wind. Behind the ‘screens,’ the serendipity of weather phenomena enhanced the engaging site-specific work, so that art, technology and nature were partners in a memorable production.
