This Summer was very creative as B Mike, founder of 2-Cent Media, took on a challenge to turn what others would call ruins into a gallery of pretty awesome artwork that was open to any creative individual to join in. He called his mission and creation, Project BE. Director, Patrick Melon, has documented the whole experience in a short film called “Very Strong Light.” This is the trailer to that documentary as well as an excerpt from the description of the film –
Visual artist and founder of 2-Cent Media in New Orleans Brandan “B Mike” Odums has transformed the abandoned Florida Projects into an underground art gallery. Through a campaign over instagram the artist has dubbed #ProjectBe several more creators and curious visitors have ventured into this space left desolate since Hurricane Katrina to contribute their individual glow. The result is a concentration of very strong light.
