Monte Carlo

I art directed this swanky 2011 fundraiser for Crestmont School co-op. Justin Katz/Paradox Media produced the event.






Sculpted entirely from paper and cardboard, this panel of ornament is inspired by classical architectural motifs similar to those in ritzy European casinos. Fluted half-columns are also paper.

The chandelier, also custom-fabricated for the event, included a rotating mirror within the fabric swags.

This approach to ornament—essentially, paper sculpture at an architectural scale—is something I will soon be developing in new directions.
