Sacred & Profane

Battery Steel, a defense structure built during WWII on Peak's Island, provides the setting for the annual Sacred & Profane celebration.

After a 20-minute procession from the ferry landing (led by an RV dressed as a magical white elephant that shat gold styrofoam) the 150-or-so of us eagerly arrived at the site where it all happens: an overgrown, dark and damp graffiti-tagged military monstrosity.

The whole interior is transformed into a candle-lit multi-media art space for this one-day event. This year, there were musical and theatrical performances, sculptural and painted pieces as well as sound and video installations throughout the building.

I lost track of time and took a lot of pictures.
