The Fluid Project
We believe our community will be stronger and more resilient when we work together than if we try to do it alone. Sponsored by Future Kind's R.E.N.O. program, the FLUID Project catalyzes collaboration and raises awareness about plastic, water, and community through participatory art.
The art is created by Sharon, Zoe, and Adrienne of Human Innerface. Community participation and collaboration is coordinated by Ecolution Studio. Several community collaborators have joined to help provide educational resources and support, enhancing the educational components of the FLUID installation.
Raising community awareness through art is the first step, the FLUID project brings that awareness into collaborative action through continued coordination and community development.
In partnership, we have launched a six-month community wide plastic film collection. The plastic will be up-cycled by NexTrex to create a bench for the new Nevada Cares Campus Safe Camp demonstrating new ways to think about our waste.
We envision the art and plastic collection sites traveling to temporary locations throughout Reno. Pitch Black Printing will serve as a permanent collection site over the six month period. If you are interested in hosting a collection site or volunteering to help please contact firstname.lastname@example.org.
