Working with Sean means big ideas, lots of ambition, and maybe some lost sleep. Our design for Constellations evolved from conversations about time, neurological pathways, how cool things look when they glow, and space age architecture. What came of that was an immersive installation that met you at the door and kept you in it’s web the whole show.
