Alone Together is a participatory sculpture and performance that provides a place for reflection while also creating an accumulation of artifacts representing our collective feelings about being simultaneously alone and together. The sculpture, a dress-to-tent wearable, is worn by the artist and erected with a centering ritual. We’re then encouraged to enter the tent and add a message about what it means to be alone/together and connect segments of glowsticks to create a collective drawing. Once the walls are covered, remnants are woven together, left on location, the tent moves and the process repeats.
FIGMENT Boston is returning for a fifth year on the Rose Kennedy Greenway. FIGMENT seeks to continue its mission to offer free, inclusive and participatory art to entire communities, removing the barriers of museum and gallery walls and entrance fees and blurring the lines between those who create and those who enjoy art.
