Joseph Altshuler Presents "Animate Architecture" at the 2021 Chicago Architecture Biennial
The series brings together architecture, puppet theater, and performance art. Episode 1: “The Stumbling Stairs” recently debuted virtually via the Biennial’s website. Each of the 3 episodes features a puppet performance or animation that propels familiar architectural “characters” into lively locomotion. Episode 1 chronicles the surprising behavior of Stairs (or “Not Stairs”) that struggle to stand up straight.
