Project Main Details

A Portrait of Mendocino A projected video artwork 
San Francisco based projection artist Ben Wood is currently preparing for an upcoming projected artwork with the Mendocino Art Center for the inaugural "Almost Fringe Festival" on the evenings of April 7th and 8th. This new projected artwork focuses on the faces and spaces of the village.

The animated artwork will present image sequences as time-lapses, cycling through portraits of the town's citizens, its artists, actors, musicians, book sellers, librarians, tour guides, historians, merchants, servers, inn-keepers, shop keepers, gardeners, cooks, residents and tourists in their spaces. People will be featured in their physical setting as animated portraits briefly carrying out their activity.

The artwork will focus on the local community members, it's quietly dedicated citizens and workers who comprise a vital source for preservation of the towns identity and the village itself as a vibrant West Coast destination of natural, cultural and architectural heritage.

Script Details

(Male Voice)

I'm an old soul, My great-great grandfather Cummings showed up here in 1862 from Scotland,
and helped build Caspar.

I am a butcher. I started in 77, It used to be a real trade. It's now just meat cutting.

Every town here was a lumber town. It's gone.

In its heyday, lumber employed 1400 hundred people.
Then national lumber companies clear cut 200,000 acres.

Ft Bragg was a working town.
There are no jobs. How ‘bout some jobs?

This used to be a town. Corporate America came in and wiped it out.
That's a fact.

(Female Voice)

My dad was the local banker. He gave loans to fishermen, lumbermen, and the founder of the Arts Center, Bill Zacha. I remember Bill coming into the house to talk with my dad about it. It was such a far-fetched thing. Mendocino was the other place....down south, It was just Dick’s Place.

I teach at Redwood Elementary in the same building and rooms where I was a student.

Fort Bragg is depressed today. In the past it was a thriving lumber town. Tourism is what keeps it afloat.
