Overview

This interactive installation was created for the production of the Guthrie Theatre's production of Sondheim's “Sunday in the Park with George.” The feature exhibition was created for the production run from June 7, to August 20, 2017. The motion and location of the viewer triggers interactive video, light, and original music.

Goals

The primary goal was to create a work that connected to the production of "Sunday in the Park with George" and to make the work engaging, entertaining, and intriguing to allow the viewers to explore the work.

Process

Discussions with the production staff led to the incorporation of 4 interactive installations located throughout the Guthrie Theatre to engage with the audience members before the production, during intermission and after the production. After the creation of a few prototypes, the final works were created on-site.

Additional Information
