Last November, “Creek Show” filled the lower end of Waller Creek with stunning installations of light art, a program of the Waller Creek Conservancy.
Now the conservancy is staging another iteration of “Creek Show” this November as well — and it’s running for nine consecutive nights.
From dusk to 11 p.m. every Nov. 12-21 five new light-based installations will fill the Waller Creek between Eighth Street and Fifth Street. All the installations are at creek level and can be viewed from the creekside walkway.
Opening night — Thursday, Nov. 12 — there will be several happenings including live DJ music at the creek.
This year there’s a new roster of artists, architects and filmmakers creating luminous site-specific installations.
Filmmaker Luke Savisky will stage a large-scale projection under and through the E. Seventh St. bridge over Waller Creek and passersby will interact with a live camera feed that will project and distort their image.
Specht Harpman Architects’ “Volume” will be a 100-foot-long illuminated waterfall along a creekside limestone wall, the water pulsing between a delicate benign trickle of droplets and a surging cascade.
Ten Eyck Landscape Architects, architect Clay Odom and Clark Richardson Architects have also been commissioned to create installations.
