This 13-foot diameter dome for Momentum: New Dance Works required climbing surfaces, hidden interactive features and rapid assembly/disassembly for multiple performances of "State of the Moon Address" (SOTMA).
I created concept sketches and worked alongside cabinetmaker Sam Pitmon to build the structure, and we refined key features in collaboration with the dance group, Hiponymous.
