Aaron Dysart, Surface
September 15 & 16, 8-10:30 pm each night.
The 49-foot tall chamber of Upper St. Anthony Falls Lock and Dam becomes a canvas for experimental artworks during this two-part series.
Surface by artist Aaron Dysart kicks off the series, using years of handwritten data recorded by Army Corps of Engineers staff at the Lock as the basis for a light show. Daily pool heights and lockages will translate into shifting colors projected on atmospheric effects created in the lock chamber. The spectacle will display the 52-year operating history of this iconic Minneapolis space through near daily observations by the people who tended it.
Free and open to the public.
