Look Solutions’ CRYO-FOG Makes Magic For “Peter Pan” At The Edmund Burke School

PanWashington, D.C.‘s Edmund Burke School, a 300-student middle school and high school with a growing performing arts and theater production program, used Look Solutions‘ CRYO-FOG low-fog system in a production of J.M. Barrie‘s classic “Peter Pan.” The program stages productions in its own new theater each trimester.

The school deployed a demo unit, in combination with various lighting effects, to simulate Marooners Rock in the middle of the water. “It worked very well and gave us an interesting, spooky environment,” reports Jonathan Deull, director of production. “The CRYO-FOG created a nice, low fog that lasted and was easy to deal with. The unit is relatively quiet — an important factor when you‘re doing a play in an intimate theatre space — and is compact, light and simple to operate. That‘s important since the system was run and managed by our students — and they didn‘t have any problems with it.” more

safeway“I don‘t think this sort of production and staging is done a lot,” muses Solomon Rosenzweig, president of DaVinci Fusion.

As they turn on California Ave and drive past the numerous old military hanger type buildings, they soon realize that they are not heading to someplace ordinary. Valet parkers in white coats rush out to greet them in front of the San Francisco Bay, with the Bay bridge looming like a giant toy in the background. They have arrived at a very special event at Treasure Island, Ca. more

Look Solutions’ Viper NT Adds Fog Effects To Artist Lisa Kirk’s Revolution! Installation

Revolution!Artist, activist and curator Lisa Kirk features fog effects created with Look Solutions‘ Viper NT fog generator in her latest project, REVOLUTION!, a multimedia installation at P.S.1 Contemporary Art Center, an affiliate of the Museum of Modern Art located in Long Island City, NY. Consistently challenging white box aesthetics and institutional elitism with democratic verve, Kirk‘s work has evolved as a series of scripted events and their ephemeral fall-out. Her projects have served to dramatize a shift in focus to the significance of social rituals.

REVOLUTION! began as a fragrance developed in collaboration with Symrise perfumers, based on interviews with journalists, activists, and political radicals who responded to the question, “What is the smell of revolution?” Using the resulting fragrance, which blends the odor of smoke, gasoline, tear gas, burnt rubber and decaying flesh, Kirk addresses the issue of contemporary luxury branding with interactive perfume displays, ad campaigns, a mock front-page story in The Baltimore Sun and the organization of the Revolutionary Knitting Circle. more
