"welcome to harvesting" is a documentation of the iterations of Harvesting using the format of an old-school pixelated game.
Using the arrow keys, the cat is able to move around, interact with other animals (birds, dogs), and see pixelated images documenting
the events. Portals are placed to transport the cat the same space at different times.

‘HARVESTING’ is a seasonal performance party where we share the witnessing/participation of creative processes by artists.
Everyone attending Harvesting is invited to share their work in informal performances and asked to participate in the ending improv jam, blurring the line between artist/creator and audience member.
Harvesting is intended to create a space that asks artists to test, experiment, or even fail-- regardless of finished status (many works shown are still "in progress").
Due to harvesting's seasonal nature, prompt, and location, it becomes an un-curatable community-based event focused on all the interesting parts of 'progress' and improvisation, while showcasing a variety of New York City artists within (and soon to be outside of) the pandemic.
