“You must give birth to your images. They are the future waiting to be born. Fear not the strangeness you feel. The future must enter you long before it happens. Just wait for the birth, for the hour of the new clarity.” – Rainer Maria Rilke
It’s been nearly a week with no update from me as I have been off-site for 5 days. I returned this afternoon to find the (roughly) 40 members of staff exploded into more than 120 people and counting, all with their imaginations running wild all over the landscape- creativity spewing forth from their fingertips, sprinkling colours and shapes and charming details in every possible corner. New installations have been made from alternative mediums such as logs, plants and stone, and brand new gardens have sprouted across the land.The specially selected handful of independent merchants are setting up their stalls and cafes.
Freqs of Nature is on the threshold of a new beginning and will enter the next phase tomorrow night when the music and lights will fuse to enrapture the participants; less than 24 hours to finish the projects! The dancefloors, which were mostly building sites when I left last Tuesday, have now been completely transformed by the décor crews. The Chill stage which was demolished due to external circumstance has now relocated and created in a completely new way from before- it is the perfect open space for you to lie back incapacitated and overwhelmed 😉
The Visionary Art Gallery is mostly set up with high quality, diverse psychedelic art and photographs on display. There are also kinetic metal sculptures by Patrice Hubert placed around the site which will spring to life emanating lambent light and gracefully moving to the music while the teeth on Matthew Crabb‘s chainsaw furiously shape logs into beautiful sculptures!
Camping is open and the shuttle buses are already running for travelers to arrive and rest (hmm…maybe?) one night before the Freqs vision rapidly unfolds over the forthcoming days of joy. More info coming soon…!
