Which colour do u bring to the party? was installed at the Salmo River Ranch in Salmo, BC for Shambhala Music Festival (August 11-12, 2017). The work, labelled with clear instructions, was reliant on contributions from festival attendees. 48 responses were received in a 48 hour period.
The titular question arose from the Saturday Morning photographs. Saturday Morning is a series of light-based abstractions that were created with camera movement at the event the year before. Each colour within those photographs was a source of light, a contributive party favour, brought specifically to illuminate a dark rural area and to cultivate a jovial atmosphere.
Which colour do u bring to the party? is intended to capture the introspective, collaborative, and absurd nature of the music festival through the participation of its attendees. All replies are displayed below.
