Description


Interim was conceived and choreographed by Allyson Green (USA) and Benjamin Wright (UK) in the summer of 2002.

British photographer Chris Nash photographed the piece's compelling, sonic landscape (see photo on right), as written by British composer Alan Stones.

Sarah Gilmartin created the lighting design. Costumes were the work of Leslie Maltz.

I was the project’s visual artist. My job was to develop a definitive feeling for the work. I did so by creating a six-minute video shot with Allyson and Ben in landscape of a fire-ravaged Anza Borrego Desert mountainside. The music chosen to underscore the video was Jan Peerce's classic 1934 piece, “Bluebird of Happiness.”

The New York City premiere of the work, featured the video and a zoetrope made from its black and white stills.

In London, I again showed the video and the zoetrope---but this time added an element of interactivity by using objects that triggered segments of text if touched. 

 

For the San Diego exhibition, the elements were presented in a separate exhibition space. This time, the video was projected into a pool of water and the room was filled with light along with one of my interactive grid pieces.
