"All Summer in a Day" Installation Design

Year

Model Making

2021

This was created as part of the Scenic Design I class at California Institute of the Arts. After reading Ray Bradbury's short story "All Summer in a Day," our task was to create an installation based on the story, using our intuition and initial reactions and emotions.

I was fascinated with the idea of being so close to sunlight, yet unable to fully see it for what it is, and the juxtaposition between the seven minutes of sunlight and the pitch black world the characters of the story live in. I decided to create a space that put guests in the role of Margot, where you want to see what's beyond the doors, but you cannot, combined with the feeling of perpetual, infinite darkness.
