Conversations About LightPlay

A mini-documentary about the LightPlay Exhibition at the Carrie Blast Furnaces 

In September of 2020, Rivers of Steel presented the LightPlay exhibition at the Carrie Blast Furnaces. This multi-sensory experience invited audiences to intimately explore this National Historic Landmark at night, leading them into locations previously restricted to the public—to discover light and sound installations created by local artists and engineers—works that examined the history, culture, and physical boundaries of the site.

This project evolved organically out of the incredible feedback we were hearing from folks who had seen the exhibition, so we decided to capture their thoughts about it. What emerged was a mini-documentary that offered more than testimonials—it shares insights and allows artworks to live on beyond the short run of the show, offering new points of view about what was created, what it means for the historic site, and how it impacted exhibit-goers, and artists as well!
