You think you know a painting until you get a closer look.
The first thing I discovered while designing the Monet projections for the First Impressions concert was how much detail there is in every brushstroke, like a painting within a painting. It reminds me of that scene in the Art Institute from Ferris Bueller’s Day Off when Cameron stares deeper into the painting until there is nothing left but a single dot. It’s in this trance state that you start to notice how the paint dances and skips across the canvas. From this filmmaker’s perspective, Monet creates a true “motion picture” in each painting.
The projection design you will see next week attempts to reveal this life and movement through animation but it’s the music that will bring out the heart and soul. With this in mind, I have choreographed every visual moment to fit with the music like a movie to its own score. And just as you start to see things by looking deeper into the painting, my hope is that the images on screen will reveal something unexpected in the music. As they say, it’s all in the details.
Tickets are going fast, and you won’t want to miss this unique concert experience.
