El Tortuga Resort Spa at Stranded!











I helped build Jeanne Angel's spa installation at Winkle & Baltic's Stranded! party on September 5th. This piece included a video projection gateway, a garden with fountain for rinsing drink cups, a bike-powered spin art activity, tea service, yoga instruction, massage tent, chilled towel service and wading pool with sound therapy. I worked mainly on the pool, which seated up to 12 people, and was full of luminescence river stones collected in Maryland and upstate NY, using Luminova pigment. Jeremy Slater and Tamara Yadao created the audio installation which married perfectly with the installation. This was one of the most well-received art projects I've been involved in!
