SEE MORE PERSPECTIVE

2022 EARLY-CAREER RESEARCH AND DEVELOPMENT GRANTEE | $2,500

Projection Mapping Installation and Musical Performance

This grant supports research and development for an ambitious visual/musical experience through projection mapping and live music that highlights the balance of life and death through layers of lyrical and visual symbolism. The project will play like an hour-long music video, with up to 15 songs and musical and spoken word interludes. The artist will stretch the bounds of projection mapping to explore narratives more akin to a feature length art film.
