Alice in process…

Instead of the question “Who is Alice?” there are now paths leading to what Alice might come to be…

The Alice Project - Alice in permanent flux and simultaneity

"An original creation directed by Marianne Weems, The Alice Project was adapted from Alice Through the Looking Glass by a team of graduate playwrights at Carnegie Mellon University. The four month tech process allowed the designers to experiment and test ideas in the performance space with every element of design present. 

My challenge was to create a powerful media server system that could not only deliver content during performances, but would also be flexible enough to allow the designers to play and create. The system was created with 6 Mac Pro towers networked together and running MAX/MSP, 3 analog video switchers, a 20x20 matrix switcher, 9 cameras placed throughout the set, 6 projectors, and an iPad. The end result allowed design changes to be implemented quickly and effectively, making experimentation and integration between the various design departments possible.

British artist Paul Skellett steps into Sir John Tenniel’s shoes to complete 
the illustration of Alice In Wonderland.

"Although many artists have been inspired over the decades to create their own take on the story it is widely acknowledged that the ultimate representation of Lewis Carroll’s imagination came to life through the original illustrations, realised by Tenniel; however there have been many experts and fans of the original release who have pointed to areas that were never illustrated… 

 To bring a new version of the original tale to life needed a very special approach. Working alongside leading Alice collector and expert, Dr. Selwyn Goodacre, former Lewis Carroll Society chairman, Mark Richards, and with the assistance of three libraries, between London and New York, Skellett has taken the lead in realising this updated set of illustrations for Alice In Wonderland. 

 His ongoing works are initially set to be unveiled at the end of 2015, with an anticipated publication of a book in 2016. The new edition will feature forewords by Dr. Goodacre and Mark Richards, with Goodacre further contributing his considered version of the original text. The exhibition shows these new illustrations, restored and remastered originals, plus a new take on Alice by the artist."

" `I dare say you never even spoke to Time!'
`Perhaps not,' Alice cautiously replied: `but I know I have to beat time when I learn music.'
`Ah! that accounts for it,' said the Hatter. `He won't stand beating. Now, if you only kept on good terms with him, he'd do almost anything you liked with the clock."
