Cube Installation for Witness

WITNESS is an international organization that trains and supports people using video in their fight for human rights. For their annual gala, they were looking for a creative way for their audience to communicate the change they want to see in the world. DCL was fortunate enough to be invited to create another version of the installation for this awesome cause.

I was excited to get familiar with my CUBES again. This time, in lieu of hundreds of paper ones, I worked with Creative Director Mark Musters and designed a cube chandelier made from plexiglass, spray paint, and copper led lights. 

The piece will be installed again in March at their 25th anniversary event, and will hopefully display cubes created by artists involved in Witness's program from all over the world. Pretty awesome. Stay tuned.

THE BLAZE

This was the first year that The Blaze on Hudson got extended past Halloween and into the Thanksgiving season... so I got a chance to check it out. It took 30 volunteers 3 hours to light the course each night. Over 1,000 new pumpkins needed to be carved to replace withering ones throughout the season. It's an impressive production of synced light, sound, and special effects complementing over 7,000 hand-carved and individually lit Jack O' Lanterns. Really, it's the closest to magic pumpkins as you can get.

Stefania Urist at RAW

All who attended Drury's MASH in summer 2015 got to see glass artist Stefania Urist's sculptures Window Dressing and Sculpture of a Mutable Painting. This past week we got to take a look at her new work on display at a RAW Artist event at The Warsaw in Brooklyn, NY. Even got a peak at some new pieces from her personal jewelry line PollyworksKeep killing it, girl.
