The visual arts are one of the essential elements to the festival "experience". I'd like to show you a sampling of some of the art I have curated for music festivals in the past, as well as a few renderings for future projects. Large-Scale Installation Art defines the visual personality of a festival. It creates a unique skyline and is an essential dimension to the identity of the event.
Lucent Dossier at Coachella 2009. Their placement in the center of the festival was our centerpiece. Some art hits a few senses, but within The Do Lab all senses are entertained. It has its own music, art, performance environments, architecture, and fun boys and girls with water cannons. Then night would transform the whole area with Josh's amazing lighting design.
Hand of Man by Christian Ristow at Coachella 2009. It is comprised of a 26-foot (8 meter) long hydraulically-actuated human hand and forearm which is capable of picking up and crushing cars, and a “glove” device that controls it. Any movement in the “glove” controller is accurately reproduced in the large robotic Hand.
