Home Audio Lighting Installation

My friend Mara hosts a music show every month at her place, where she invites friends to perform pieces they are working on and experiment with sound.  I offered to make an installation for the last one.  I wanted to play with light and shadows, and create an ephemeral feeling for the singing and sound going on in the space.

I've got a week left to create something for the next one...stay tuned!!

Searching for Knowledge and Inspiration at the Moma Again

Did I find it?  I'm not sure. 

I've been working on a furniture design project, that's weighed heavily on my mind, mostly because I've never designed furniture before, so I am constantly looking at furniture everywhere I go.  I think its hard to see right now what I'm learning, but in a while from now, I'll understand.

Design Meeting 2013

Last month I went to Design Meeting 2013, where the all of the graduating theater arts students of Yale, NYU, and CalArts present their portfolios to the general public and the theater industry.  Below is a photo of  the work of my dear friend the fabulous costume designer Kate Fry.  

I'm always inspired by the world of theater, and how it relates to architecture, but in a way that allows our imagination runs wild.

The Unisphere!

I finally made the trek out to Flushing Meadows Corona Park, the site of the 20th Century World's Fair, where I saw The Unisphere, and some other strange alien buildings.  The theme of the fair, back in 1964, was"Peach Through Understanding" and dedicated to "Man's Achievement on a Shrinking Globe in an Expanding Universe."  


Seeing the colossal spherical structure and connecting with the theme of the fair was rejuvenating and gave me the inspiration I was looking for last week.
