VB06 – Golden / Red
St. Leo University, Main Art Gallery
7 July 2009
Florida’s St. Leo University invited us to create a performance for the main art exhibition space on their virtual campus. I used the recently released Looklet wardrobe design tool to create a look for Golden / Red which included a Missoni scarf worn as a top. With St. Leo we organized a fashion design competition to create a virtual scarf for the performance. Designers took the Missoni knit as inspiration, and Boofy Halfpint was eventually awarded the design prize & commission.
Realizing that in our first 5 performances our cast had stood mostly motionless for almost 30 hours, I created rest animations and allowed individual cast members to stand, squat, or lie on the floor at their own discretion.
