A site-specific installation commissioned for LightWorks IV by the UCSB Public Arts Research Lab and the Santa Barbara County Arts Commission, funded by the California Arts Council. A public playground swing set is transformed into a computer-controlled video-driven light box - an experimental environment enabling a series of collaborative performance works. This video includes documentation from several of the performances.
Eleven performances were developed for the Playground light-box, in collaboration with aerialists, musicians, dancers, and a-cappella singers.
