Jimmy Stamp + Sergio Padilla + Frederick Stivers + Gumbo Labs – DesCours 2009 – Orpheus Descending

This installation, presented for the 2009 DesCours event in New Orleans, is described in the designers words as below:

Orpheus Descending ushers visitors through a sequence of unique experiences that arise as private space becomes public domain.  The installation will transform the courtyard by use of basic elements: wind, water, light, and sound.  To achieve this, an inflatable object is assembled from an inexpensive palette of common materials and illuminated to create complex phenomenon that generate both form and a backdrop for projection.
