Last night I had the pleasure of tagging along with Katy and Zachary of The Happy Couple Duo while they made outdoor art. They are planning a huge move across the country later this year. They want to stop along the way creating temporary light based art installations. I think it is a brilliant idea. The couple is from Cincinnati so before they embark on their journey they decided to begin the project here. They started a Kickstarter called Traveling At the Speed of Light to help fund some of the equipment they need to be mobile and weather proof while creating these installations.
I met Katy and Zachary at one of my favorite parks, International Friendship Park, where they planned on lighting the ‘Castle of Air’ sculpture. I was utterly inspired watching these two interact with each other and the environment on this project. They are an artistic force. They work very hard to make these ideas come to life. If you decide to help fund their efforts, I can say you will honestly be supporting two very dedicated artists.
I fed off of their creative energy and managed to create some very cool images of them using their lights. I am excited to push this even more when we collaborate on some future projects.
For me, one of the greatest things about this project was seeing how people reacted to it. Every single person who walked by stopped to chat with the couple about what they were doing. And every single person was memorized by how beautiful it was. The sculpture during the day.
