RISING TIDE / DON'T BLOW IT
Storefronts in the One Colorado block of Pasadena become canvases for an ambitious and awe-inspiring video-art installation courtesy of the husband-and-wife team, Alex Kritselis and Joey Forsyte. In their first official collaboration together, the visionary multimedia artists expose holiday shoppers and Rose Parade revelers to multi-channel works of public art that subtly address the environment. Kritselis and filmmaker wife Forsyte, (president of Velocity Filmworks), use 13 projectors to bring us a selection of original moving images that are rotated weekly. In an effort to unite the community through awareness, Don't Blow It / A Rising Tide simultaneously redefines the notion of public art. - Tanja M. Laden
