Nicole produced An Elongated Now, a historical live art performance by internationally renowned installation and environmental artist Lita Albuquerque in conjuncture with Laguna Art Museum’s Art & Nature Festival. The event took place Saturday, November 8, 2014 on Main Beach in Laguna with 200 participants.
Albuquerque has developed a visual language that brings the realities of time and space to a human scale and is acclaimed for her ephemeral and permanent art works executed in the landscape and public sites. Albuquerque’s work questions our place in the enormity of infinite space and eternal time.
Similar to Spine of the Earth 2012, this large-scale outdoor project engaged the community in becoming the artwork itself; each individual coming together to form a single image: a sweeping arc at the edge of the sea. The artwork emphasized that it is through the collective that we arrive at an image that is larger than ourselves.
