The Spitfire Grill (Syracuse University)
Director: Ralph Zito
Lighting: Emily Stork
Sound: Kevin O'Connor
Costumes: Katie Tulin
Materials: This project began as a large-scale exploration of salvage techniques. The majority of materials were donated or found discarded, and we worked with several local businesses to use raw materials that would normally be considered imperfect or excess. The result was an assemblage that unified the indivdiual histories of each material that was used in process. Ink and walnut stains were used on wood and cardboard to reduce the impacts of latex treatments. Following the show, metal, asphalt, wood, architectural elements, and cardboard were all individually recycled or donated to salvage centers.
