EyeSOAR Fringe Edition
“make as much noise as we want, no one will care”
The connotation of “eyesore”, an unpleasant sight in a public place, spins in EyeSOAR as audio, video and movement highlight the wonderful people and organizations in an industrial neighborhood. Space is getting tighter and longtime occupants nestle within change.
The area in Arlington would have been, “early on, a swamp next to Four Mile Run and then over time it was filled and then used as a Union shooting range,” says Charles Meng, Director of Arlington Food Assistance Center. Fragments of older cinder block buildings remain alongside changing surroundings. It’s a busy area with multiple bus routes and foot traffic.
Performers are Ian Edwards, Carly Johnson, Shonnita Johnson, Kelsey Rohr, Amy Scaringe, Brynna Shank, and Rebecca Weiss with live music by Don Zientara, founder of Inner Ear Studio, a recording studio engaged by musicians including Dave Grohl and the Foo Fighters. Interviews are by Charles Meng, Director of Arlington Food Assistance Center, founder Don Zientara of Inner Ear Studio, Mike Katrivanos of New District Brewing, Rudy Flores of Automotive Express, Travis Hackney, Weenie Beenie, Mary Stewart (Vice President, External Affairs WETA), Megan Carney, Dept of Parks and Recreation, Jessica Ward of The Board Hound, and Uzi Samee Cultural Affairs Specialist.
Bringing awareness to an everyday but heavy utilized and under recognized public site
