A classroom by day, the TIMARA Performance Technology Lab is regularly transformed by students creating sound art installations or presenting their junior or senior recital. It is a wonderful space to test out a new idea, to present a project, to rehearse, and to document work.
The recent addition of a theatrical light and sound grid has unlocked new creative potential for the space.
Shortly after the Performance Technology Lab reopened, TIMARA and studio art double degree student Maya McCollum presented her TIMARA junior recital: Woven Topographies.
The piece made use of the grid for hanging sculptural and decorative elements, as well as for projection mapping and lighting.
Maya also chose the Performance Technology Lab for this installation because she was able to take plenty of time to install her work over the course of several weeks.
We recently installed a lighting grid, wraparound curtain and green screen to accommodate an even broader range of creative endeavors.
