Art Installation for The Aspen Ideas Festival 2014, 2015, 2017, 2018. There were several challenges in this project not the least of which was the technical one of suspending the “stained glass” within the armature of the sculpture in an outdoor installation subject to wind and weather. Then there is the challenge of how do you keep the visuals fresh year after year. Fortunately these are so dynamic and sensitive to different light at different times of day playing with shadows on pavement, on grass, on deep water, on shallow water makes these “the same” but “different” for each year.
Allen Moyer’s design for Elixir of Love for the Opera Colorado (2006) and the San Francisco Opera (2008) Saint Louis Opera (2014). Scenic Supplier and Assistant Designer.
Installation in a private home of a Papier-mâché Plane Tree (1996) it needed a little repair work in 2016 after an enthusiastic guest poked a hole in it to find out how it was made- wish they’d just looked at the in progress pictures on line.
I went down to the Santa Fe Opera to see Allen Moyer’s Design for Sun Yat Sen. These are a few sketches I did while watching the piano rehearsal.
I’d just read about Neri Oxman’s Geodesic Dome made by silk worms. These are begging to be on silk… or maybe the silk worms could make the images…
