Several months before the October 2015 FAR-West conference, twenty-one songs by FAR-West artists were secretly given to twenty-one visual artists (professional and amateur) who created paintings, photographs, drawings, digital art, collages, sculptures and baked goods (no joke) based on those songs. This project was developed by Phil Ward and he called it Now See Hear.
The invented-for-FAR-West Now See Hear Project can now claim to have inspired at least 33 original songs and at least 36 original works of art. (The numbers are probably higher by the time you read this.) So that’s about 70 new creations for the world’s eyes and ears (and, in two cases, the world’s tastebuds), all because people signed up for the NSH Project.
