Film captures lifespan of ephemeral art
October 29, 2020
Using items found in nature, over 15 local artists from a range of age groups constructed pieces of ephemeral art that were spread throughout the community to celebrate last month's Rainforest Festival. Kelly Bakos' film "Ephemeral" documents the creation and lifespan of some of those creations.
Ephemeral art is a natural form of art that lasts a short period of time. The art pieces are constructed outdoors and as time progresses, they slowly become something else. Leaves change colors. Birds and small creatures pick at berries and mushrooms. Wind and rain shifts the gathered materials.
