THE NEW WORLD
The objective of this assignment was to program a lighting demo to an instrumental piece. I chose an instrumental of Jason Robert Brown's "The New World" from Songs for a New World

The installation is composed of 500+ plastic waste bags hung ceiling to floor to create a maze for patrons to explore and take their own path.
The intent behind choosing plastic bags was provoked by the idea of reimagining something otherwise thought to be trivial into something craving to be discovered. Conceptually the maze tied into this idea of discovery and the weightlessness of the plastic allowed the installation to rustle and move and become as alive as the people exploring it.
