MILK ROUTE DRAWN BY GPS
In the sunny Saturday afternoon an artwork created by latest technologies was opened at the Bārda Family house made of horizontal beams – with artists, authors of the installation, as well as Limbaži farmers, participants of the project. [. . .]
Installation Milk is one of the projects included in the festival Art + Communication that takes place in Latvia for the seventh time. The festival is organised by the New Media Centre RIXC, but its Director Ieva Auziņa together with the Dutch artist Esther Polak created the installation Milk. Mārtiņš Ritums Treimanis, Katvari Parish Chairman and owner of the farmstead Jaundzelves, Jānis Simsons, owner of the farmstead Kundziņi and other farmers of the Limbaži District took part in the opening of the installation. Simsons said that he was delighted by the outcome because now there is much more information what exactly is the route of milk produced in the area.
Katvari Parish Chairman Mārtiņš Ritums Treimanis stressed that his aim is to use every chance to popularise his parish and Latvia abroad, and considers this project’s result an interesting research and nice representational material on farmers’ work. Treimanis also said that the outcome is balanced and precisely this kind of art is worth of interest. [. . . ]
