Over the last few weeks I had the pleasure of working alongside Denver artist Hadley Hooper (her website is www.hadleyhooper.com) at the Denver Art Museum to install an actual masterpiece Hadley designed during the first few months of 2016. The installation, titled Tableau, transforms an entire room into a magical land, crossing the lines between a theater set and a pop-up book... and the best part is, you're meant to interact with it! There are benches and swings and holes to peer through and photos to be taken. We brought the entire piece to life using wallpaper paste to meticulously glue over 500 individual sheets of 30 X 20 inch copy paper to the walls and wooden creatures.
Tableau will sit on the second floor of the Hamilton Building (the crazy pointy building) at the DAM for the next year. It's sophisticated, but it's also fun. Go play with it.
