Phipps Conservatory Chihuly Gala
Clear Story was commissioned by The Event Group to customize the special events space at Phipps Conservatory and Botanical Gardens for Chihuly Gala - Gardens & Glass in 2007. This event featured an exclusive reception with the renowned glass artist, Dale Chihuly. Clear Story created an abstract video installation that expressed the elemental qualities and handmade approach to the glass-making process. To reflect the rich colors inherent in the artist's work - and to simply reduce the intensity of the prevailing daylight during the early evening event - Clear Story designed and installed a temporary installation of ultra-saturated color film on the windows of the space. This playful and dramatic gesture transformed the space, and the colors combined to create a radiant hue that enveloped the crowd.
