Stratosphere is an exhibition exploring light and the ways that light can manipulate architecture, object, and perspective. Through projection, shadowplay, performance, and sculpture, OBLSK has created an event that is exciting, innovative, entertaining, and beautifully dark.
Fox written and produced by eve Warnock and Pelham Johnston is a 3d projection mapping onto three mannequins that tells the story of vanity and greed through the interaction of a beautiful woman/fox, a narrator/badger, and a business man/lion. The powerful imagery and magnetic storytelling are innovative and immersive engaging the audience in a visual dreamscape that unravels in mysterious ways.
