seandphotoI spent this week helping to document the creation of a piece called "Optimist" by @hotteampls .
This is a photo of the installation in the midst of its environment. This section of South Minneapolis is supposedly one of the highest crime areas in the city, but all I saw was happy kids playing soccer. Everyone we spoke to was really friendly or curious about the piece. We spent around 15 hours over 2 days to film this being created. By the end the weather had gotten bad and it was hard to make out the arch through all the grey and rain. Kids were running around and tearing at the strings. We weren't sure the installation was going to last a day with all the rain and people pulling on it. Today we went back to see what happened. The sun finally came out, and the piece reappeared in the bright colors it was created From. If you live in Minneapolis, you should take a peek (currie park). If not, you'll see the video sooner than later.3mon

hotteampls I had a wonderful experience working with you. One of the best as a matter of fact. It was a nice surprise seeing you and @robotboot@cshimala today. It made me realize how dedicated all of you were to documenting this piece. I am honored to have been able to work with you. @seandphoto3mon
