This stage design series involved starting with a blank white stage at the beginning of a DJ set.  It is a collaboration with a painter, who begins to fill the stage with black line drawings throughout the evening.  As the painter fills the stage, I live-projection mapped using TouchDesigner to the artist’s drawings.  Collectively the painter and I fill the stage over the course of the event.  The stages turn out different every time, and design decisions are made on-the-fly to bring the paintings to life.
