Mary Zebell is a landscape designer and artist who has worked on private and public commissions across the U.S. More specifically, her site-specific public art was commissioned in 2007 by FLEFF, commemorating those killed in war or natural disasters since 2000.
She designed the set for last night's American Dissonances multimedia concert performed by Frank Campos, Jairo Geronymo,, Deborah Martin, Wendy Mehne, Dawn Pierce and Nicholas Walker. Ann Michel and Phil Wilde of Insights International Inc. created the multimedia design and projections.
The concert was musically enchanting and intellectually challenging. The use of duet pianos, rhythmic bass, old-school trumpet and angelic opera kept the audience on the edge of their seats. While Insights International Inc. layered a mash-up of historic footage to challenge minds as much as hearts. It was all tied together with Zebell's flawless set design using caution tape, and a neon blue and orange American flag.
