      SHORELINE PROJECT

      Vision

      #SHORELINE PROJECT – From the mind of artist Elizabeth Turk, this is art as a shared experience on a scale that redefines public, experiential art and engages community differently. Art that brings people together, is inclusive, and celebrates our intrinsic human connection to the natural world.

      Process

      #SHORELINE PROJECT – Months of meticulous planning: developing illuminated umbrella designs, gathering one thousand + volunteers, measuring and mapping the shoreline, studying the tides, choreographing motion for mimicry, and creating acoustical prompts for the soundscape to cue movement. Nothing was overlooked. When drums found “the heartbeat of the ocean”, organizers and participants alike let go. The collective energy took on a life of its own.

          Building Community

          #SHORELINE PROJECT – One thousand community members gathered at sunset on Laguna’s Main Beach and in unison, lit their umbrellas to the cue of local musicians. Over the span of two hours while losing a sense of self-consciousness, the one thousand became ONE — a singular luminous organism. Through dance, laughter and sheer joy, former strangers turned into friends, barriers forgotten, the power of art remembered.

          Civic Landscape

          #SHORELINE PROJECT is a living, breathing work of art. It is a shared vision between art, nature, and humankind redefining hope. The documentation of which will reshape our public facing squares. This civic space can reflect our new collective identity, let’s create differently. Help us make this a reality.
