WORLD IS BURNING

WORLD IS BURNING

Living Memory

Living Memory

A projection piece that features a volumetric fog display designed to represent memory and its simultaneously ephemeral and corporeal nature. Community members are invited to submit photos and stories of lost loved ones to an online portal. The installation then generates holograms of those individuals who have passed, creating a piece where viewers inhabit the same physical space as their memories. As viewers approach the piece, the image fades away.

A CYI studio piece created by Asher Young with Noah Kernis and Angeline Wang.

Desire Lines

Desire Lines

A projection exhibition that asks students to consider spaces across campus through the lens of desire lines and examine the ways in which those spaces might reflect their individual needs and experiences. The voices encountered in the resulting works in process revealed an acute, communal desire for connection, contemplation, and expression.

Another Rose

DPR

DPR

A world tour that immersed fans in the world of music collective DPR and subverted their expectations of a standard concert experience by incorporating narrative structure, an art installation, and theatrical stagecraft into the show.

A preshow sound installation hinted at the visual, sonic, and conceptual themes of the show; the show itself featured two giant inflatables, fifteen pool floaties thrown into the crowd, 200 pink wigs given to audience members, three kabuki drops, and a variety of other scenic, lighting, and special effects elements to tell the story of each artist’s journey within the collective.

Schwarzman Purple Rain Event

Schwarzman Purple Rain Event

Celebrating the work of David Bowie and Prince, Blackstar Rising & The Purple Reign will explore the careers of two singular musicians who changed the face of popular music culture in the second half of the twentieth century. Bringing together scholars, musicians, filmmakers, artists, journalists, and students for discussion, critical listening, and musical performance, this event will examine the pathbreaking innovations of these two remarkable musicians, and explore the legacies of two artists who recognized the ways that popular music can create liberating spaces where audacious cultural and social changes and transformations might flourish. Lectures and roundtable discussions will examine how Bowie and Prince each championed aesthetic, social, and cultural freedom and rule-breaking in their respective repertoires and ultimately revolutionized racial, gender, and sexual identity politics in popular music culture. The event will culminate in a concert featuring the band TV On The Radio.
