[Wheat Ridge] Olinger Crown Hill Cemetery, in conjunction with the Asian Chamber of Commerce, cordially invites kiters to attend the 1st annual CHING MING FESTIVAL.
There will be a complimentary Chinese dinner for participants. Also drinks, live music, lion Dance,
Ching Ming, or Quingming, means "Clear and Bright". A day for mourning the Dead, a day for Chinese families to visit their ancestors and relatives graves. Ching Ming falls early in April every year and corresponds with the onset of warmer weather, the state of Spring, and of family outings. This is a one day holiday in most Asian countries for the descendents to "sweep the graves" of their ancestors. It is not a solemn occasion, but rather a time for happy communion with the family members to show respect for their ancestors.
Kiters are there to launch and fly kites as a symbol of the souls ascending to heaven. This holiday appears similar to the November 1st "Dia De Los Muertos" or "All Saints Day" in Latin or Catholic culture.

[Atlanta] Kite-mounted aerial photography captures a rarely seen point of view in a fashion akin to hand-held camera-work. This view allows a unique perspective for experiencing the environs and the camera’s relationship to the wind itself. Kites is not a play. It is a documentary film, using Aerial Videography, which is being developed for eventual presentation as a gallery installation. During Brave New Works, the artist will be focused on the issue of projection. He is experimenting with various strategies to ‘break away from the screen’ and test alternative projection surfaces including the human body, architecture, locations and moving kites. Technicians, actor/dancers, photographers, and art historians will assist the maker in his exploration of various ways space can be shared by spectators and projected images.
