■ "On Friday I posted about the bullwhip used in the “Maker and Muse” performance event choreographed by Laura at Soho House. The “Maker and Muse” event allowed me to assist in production of an event alongside production of objects. through this event, I was able to follow the process of fully realizing a theme. I enjoyed working with Laura and observing a concept from start to finish in a time frame that fit within the scope of the internship period. For the Maker and Muse event I was fortunate to see the sculpting of an idea through Laura’s initial idea to the finished product. During the life of this project, I most enjoyed adopting the role of something of a prop assistant. I found that I had a previous experience where I could lend a hand by turning my hands pink to create realistic fake blood. I enjoyed helping to create ephemera, also, raising the brightness of mechanical candles as the performers approached the stage. It was a pleasure to see how an event like this comes together, and to observe how an artist
can set a performance’s tone through use of props and music." -@b_hayden_ ■ #hvgvinternship #benjaminhayden @saiccareers
