Magic Flute / Opera Design / Remix Project

Digital Art Mixed-Media students will be contributing imagery for the Opera Production of Magic Flute to be staged at Weber Music Hall in December 2015. We plan to do digital projections across 3 screens, thinking about triptych images that mix the traditional story themes of Egyptian temples, landscapes and gardens with more modern settings.
