PROSPECT – Fort Knox is about to feel the FLOW.

FLOW is an event series produced by the Coaction Lab in association with the Intermedia MFA and New Media undergraduate programs at the University of Maine and in collaboration with the Friends of Fort Knox.

This event series is focused on water as a precious resource that connects and supports the diverse range of living systems on our planet. This year's event is in collaboration with, host of SCANZ 2017 Ocean + Energy an international biennial. Intercreate is an organization exploring projects at the juncture of art, science, culture and technology.

Last year's event took place at the Thomas Hill Standpipe in Bangor and this year's FLOW Fort Knox event will take place on June 24 at the historic Fort Knox and Penobscot Narrows Bridge and Observatory in Prospect, across the Penobscot River from Bucksport.  

This event has been sponsored in part by grants from the University of Maine College of Liberal Arts & Sciences, the Cultural Affairs/Distinguished Lecture Series Fund and the University of Maine Humanities Center.

Fort Knox, a Civil War-era fort that never saw battle, serves as a truly inspiring subject with its rich history near the mouth of the Penobscot Bay. We will creatively explore the deep roots of this historic site as well as the unique architectural features of Fort Knox and nearby Penobscot Narrows Bridge and Observatory, all with an ecological focus in mind.  

An array of artists, scientists, historians and local cultural groups have been invited to participate and collaborate to create a multi-sensory/multi-perspective experience. Sculpture, Installation, Performance, Sound, New Media, Projection Mapping and many other hybrid art forms will be included in FLOW 2017.

Participating Artists Include:

Michell Bezik, Joline Blais, Ryan Hart, Wade Warman, Ali Asgar, Stanley Levitsky, Amanda Quiring, Susan Smith, Derek Smith, Jim Winters, J.P. Werner, Ava Werner, Gene A. Felice II, Eleanor Kipping, Nate Aldrich, Steve Norton, Leslie Ross, Celeste Roberge, Tara Law, David Allen, Owen Smith.
