FYNE is a audiovisual campsite made out of synthetic and industrial materials offering visitors a compressed rendering of nocturnal America in the summertime. Campers are encourage to relax in a fiberglass video tent or stretch out on a faux forest floor and bathe in a cycle of shimming abstractions, which originated as landscape and documentary photography captured by artist Matthew Caron while traveling throughout the United States.
The centerpiece of the FYNE campsite is a hexagonal tent illuminated by projected video. Campers are invited to rest on a bed of shredded paper which serves as a forest floor. Guests may relax, meditate, perform or play within the space as they please, so long as they obey the universal rules of camping: leave no trace behind, and take nothing but memories. The FYNE campsite should not be taken as a substitution for an experience of the outdoors, but a compressed expression of the artist’s pleasure in traveling and synthesizing his experiences.
