Breaking Ground at Carrie Furnaces

August 22, 2019 - August 24, 2019


Rivers of Steel Arts is excited to present the traveling multimedia installation Breaking Ground at the Carrie Blast Furnaces for a three-night screening.  Lensed through the rise of the oil industry in North Dakota, Breaking Ground is an immersive meditation on the tale of dreams sought and abandoned that wends its way through the American psyche and the physical landscape of the country itself.  The Breaking Ground exhibition has traveled across the country showcasing a series of site-specific photographic and sound installations created by artist Valerie Lyman.  Photographs projected onto large industrial remnants accompany sound compositions selected from over 15,000 negatives and hours of audio recorded during her five year field work in the Bakken region of North Dakota.
