2019 New Work Grantee, Shana Siegel presents: "Roommates"
"Roommates" is a semi-permanent site-specific installation on the roof of the New York Hall of Science. It depicts two large fictional creatures based on the real-life symbiotic relationship between the pistol shrimp and the goby fish. “Roommates” demonstrates how, in theatrical scenery, two-dimensional surfaces can appear three-dimensional. The opening coincides with the New York Hall of Science event "Dead or Alive": An afternoon of exploring the science of creepy. Make your own fake vial of blood, become a zombie while learning about biological simulations, and create a real habitat for a fake creature. Do it all, while listening to live music! Prizes will be handed out for those who come in costume. Artist Shana Siegel will be demonstrating how theatrical scenic backdrop paintings are made, live-painting a 12’ x 9’ night landscape on velvet from start to finish. Spooky painted lighting effects will ensue.
