由Waller Creek Conservancy提供的Creek Show跨越了9晚，包括Waller Creek在第5街和第8街之间的6处基于光线的特定场地艺术装置。邀请社区沿Waller Creek散步观看艺术作品，旨在引起Waller Creek未来的复兴和转型，并将其转变为一系列城市公园。
在Creekshow之后，旗帜将被收集并捐赠给我们在Treefolks的朋友 - 强化我们的信念，尽量减少浪费。我们的目标是与Treefolks协调，在我们的城市森林和奥斯汀水道上看到8万个旗帜变成8万棵新树。
“Creek Show一直是一个非常独特和特殊的机会。我们一直坚信Waller Creek多年的变革力量，但是当我们提交了Creek Show的设计时，我们低估了参与的沉浸式体验最终会重塑我们对特定地点公共艺术装置的力量的理解，拥有作为设计团队的潜力。 Creek Show加强了我们对Waller Creek的热情和承诺，也加强了对Austin活力和真实性的保护和提升的挑战。我们真诚希望看到事件随着时间的推移如何演变。“ - Daniel Woodroffe
dwg. was selected through an open competition to exhibit Night Garden at the fourth annual Creekshow event, alongside five other installations.
Night Gardens are spaces for dreaming. We think that Austin has been dreaming of the Waller Creek Transformation, whether we know it or not. An inhabitable reverie, Night Garden’s surreal atmosphere aims to shift perceptions of the creek towards wonder and excitement for its future. Viewers become immersed in 80,000 fluorescent survey flags “planted” at creek’s edge and are surrounded by the sounds of thriving urban ecology.
Presented by the Waller Creek Conservancy, Creek Show spans nine nights and includes six light-based, site-specific art installations on Waller Creek between 5th and 8th Streets. The community is invited to walk along Waller Creek to view the works of art designed to bring attention to the future revitalization and transformation of Waller Creek into a series of urban parks.
Following Creekshow, the flags will be collected and donated to our friends at Treefolks - reinforcing our belief in minimizing waste. Our goal is to coordinate with Treefolks to see 80,000 flags turn into 80,000 new trees in our urban forest and along Austin’s waterways.
“Creek Show has been an utterly unique and special opportunity. We have been firm believers of the transformative power of Waller Creek for years but when we submitted our design for Creek Show, we underestimated that the immersive experience of participating would ultimately retool our understanding of the power of site specific public art installations, and of our own potential as a design group. Creek Show has reinforced our passion and commitment to Waller Creek and also to the wicked challenge of preserving and enhancing Austins vitality and authenticity. We sincerely look forward to seeing how the event evolves over time.” - Daniel Woodroffe
Night Garden was the recipient of a 2018 Texas ASLA Honor Award, as well as a 2018 World Landscape Architecture Merit Award.
