Rock County Folk Symposium

The Rock County Folk Symposium is a daylong music festival near Janesville, Wisconsin. I created a video installation for the festival's fifth year by printing six images on a Vandercook SP15, and using watercolors to paint what would become each video frame.

The final video was projected onto a canvas screen adjacent to Camp Rotamer's fire pit. The festival ended with a musical campfire session, during which Milwaukee-based folk group Hello Death played an intimate set, using the installation as their backdrop.
