Crafting Aesthetic from Sensation
In this session, participants will gain insight into the creative process of three artists from different mediums: multimedia & projections design, lighting, and movement. Projection designer Kelly Colburn, lighting designer Peter Liebold, and company dancer Abby Farina invite participants to get curious about where they pull inspiration from and what that says about their intuition and the values that guide their choice-making. Through sensation-based prompts that inform their creative processes, Kelly, Peter, and Abby foster participants’ exploration in real-time, examine how each artist might create in response to one another, and share ways of communicating between disciplines.
