A Fool’s Life. Projection images and effects pieces. 2011.
These are some of the pieces I created for the theatrical production, A Fool’s Life, based on the life and stories of reowned modern Japanese writer Rynosuke Aktugawa, written and directed by Dan Watson and produced by the Ahuri Theatre Company.
The work I produced was under the direction of artist Sean Frey who specializes in projection work and effects for sets of theatrical and musical productions. Sean created a unique visual experience that truely brought the stage to life and greatly added to the show as a performance on its own. I was very thankful to have been able to work with Sean on this show and enjoyed creating these pieces and working on the stage construction.
Images in order as seen:
1920’s Beijing Street, black card cutout between sheets of acetate - projected background as part of the “Horse Legs” story component.
Menacing Owl, ink on acetate - projected effect of owl attack as part of a scene from the “Hell Screen” component.
Visions of the Buddhist Hell, ink and acrylic on acetate - projected effect as part of the dream sequence in the “Hell Screen” component.
Visions of the Buddhist Hell - detail.
