Theater Projection Design: Summer

I designed the video projection backdrops to this stage rendition of Edith Wharton’s novella, Summer. My challenge was to complement the stage design and enhance the environment without drawing attention to the technological aspect of the video. Using a minimalistic approach, I created painterly images of natural landscapes and interiors, which dissolved into each other, carrying the audience through scene transitions. Although the design consisted mainly of still images, some moving pictures such as morphing clouds and an arcing moon made it into the piece, but even these were very slow moving, to preserve the feeling of stillness.
