You’ve heard of Christmas in July, right? Well, how about April Fools’ Day in June? We decided to do a little social science experiment: In today’s 5-nanosecond news cycle, how would people respond to photographs taken three months ago? Please add your comments below, so we can honestly claim to have relied on at least some actual data. We hope to publish the results of this study in a prestigious academic journal — or perhaps on a cocktail napkin. Either way, it’s good.

FoolMoon 2016 | Local artist Scott Wedemeyer’s ambitious FoolMoon project (#FoolsFrame). All night long, Fools waited their turn to move through the “frame” and be captured in three consecutive still photographs, which would ultimately be strung together into a single time-lapse-ish movie. (Does anyone know if the movie was ever actually made? Is there a URL? If you know, please add a comment.)

Thanks to your badass photography skills (and the gorgeous evening weather) these are some of the most stunning photos you’ve ever taken of our Foolish events.
Bravo!! Foolish hats off to you, Myra, for momentarily freezing these gigantic kinetic experiences into miniature works of art, for all of us to enjoy far into
the future.

Myra, your photos are absolutely gorgeous as usual!! Love the one of Max with Conrad the Unicorn!! I was also wondering about the movie made from the people in the frame. I hope someone will post a link. Thanks for sharing the beauty of Fool Moon! Do we really have to wait until April for this again?!!!
