Making Mill Town

THE MAKING MILL TOWN VIDEO DOCUMENTS THE CREATION OF MILL TOWN, AN IMMERSIVE MULTIMEDIA PERFORMANCE INSTALLATION THAT ANIMATES THE HISTORY AND CULTURE OF MILL LIFE THE 19TH CENTURY.  THROUGH A LOOSE IMAGISTIC NARRATIVE REFERENCING PAST, PRESENT AND FUTURE, MILL TOWN CONJURES NEW POSSIBILITIES FOR VACANT MILL BUILDINGS THAT ONCE PROVIDED THE LEWISTON-AUBURN COMMUNITIES THEIR BACKBONE AND CHARACTER.  MAKING MILL TOWN WILL SERVE AS A LASTING DOCUMENT OF THIS POWERFUL AND EPHEMERAL PERFORMANCE THAT RE-ANIMATED THE WORK AND LIFE OF ONE MILL COMMUNITY AND INSPIRED AUDIENCES WITH A HIGHLY IMAGINATIVE, SITE-SPECIFIC EXPRESSION OF THE ICONIC SPACES.
