Animate Architecture virtual screening
Animate Architecture is a video series by Could Be Design that brings together architecture, puppet theater, and performance art. Episode 1: "The Stumbling Stairs" debuts virtually at the 2021 Chicago Architecture Biennial. Each of the 3 episodes features a puppet performance or animation that propels familiar architectural “characters” into lively locomotion. Episode 1 chronicles the surprising behavior of Stairs (or “Not Stairs”) that struggle to stand up straight. The video series includes downloadable print-out materials for at-home model-making participation.
This project is a collaboration with Lizi Breit and Myles Emmons.
