YANKEETOWN POND PROJECT SCREENING
A video by Keiko Sono
6pm Wednesday December 16th, 2015
followed by a Q&A with the filmmaker
free & open to the public
The Center for Photography at Woodstock (CPW) presents a special screening of Bearsville artist Keiko Sono’s Yankeetown Pond Project.
Keiko Sono’s Yankeetown Pond Project chronicles her public art project of the same name and the deep connection area residents have with Yankeetown Pond. Originally planned as a community time-lapse production with a straightforward question, “Is the pond changing into a bog?” the project was soon turned upside down by a resident protester. This encounter led the project through transformation, just as the pond itself is constantly being reshaped by beavers, weather, and human interactions, resulting in the story of Yankeetown Pond as a complex and fascinating ecosystem of which humans are an integral part.
The screening will be followed by a talk, in which Sono will share her experience, with plenty of practical suggestions for artists and activists interested in working with the community.
