Drawing by the Scalerule

Initial design ideas for RLTP’s Water by the Spoonful are underway. Inspired by the minimalist work of Appia and Meilziner, and the geometry of modern architectural gardens, I’m exploring the worlds of evocative spaces that serve multi-functions. All amidst a contemplative week of death and birth(days). Enjoying the quiet of woods, despite the frigid cold, it’s a chance to celebrate life.

Storehouse: beautifully grotesque

Last weekend, in between paint calls and prepping for a new semester of teaching, I was able to tour Storehouse, presented by Torn Space. Billed as a site-specific spectacle, it did not disappoint as an immersive theatrical experience. Guided through what felt like post-apocalyptic vignettes in an abandoned factory, and dilapidated rooms transformed into poetic and futuristic snapshots, Silo City once again came to life thanks to artistic intervention. Kudos to my love and friends for transporting us all on a journey through dirt and grime turned evocative and grotesquely beautiful.
