A Midsummer Night’s Dream
“And, as imagination bodies forth
the forms of things unknown, the poet’s pen
turns them to shapes, and gives to airy nothing
a local habitation and a name.”
An audio-visual installation inspired by Shakespeare’s popular comedy where the contrasting worlds of Athens (representing order and rigidity) and the Forest (representing chaos and flexibility) collide. The installation is an immersive space consisting of an assembly of musical and sound instruments. Based on how the spectators interact and play with the objects, the space can create an ordered melody or a chaotic disharmony. Puck is the maestro of this postmodern, post-internet orchestra.
