For the advanced design class at Loyola, Design III, we explored two theoretical designs throughout the semester, focusing on one design path. I took Design III three times, and completed the Lighting track my senior year.
Since this semester was entirely on Zoom, we focused on lighting sketches for the first show. Our design vision was to depict the deliberate isolation of Black men with a single road, and we used Absurdism and Surrealism in lighting to achieve that containment.
Since I didn't the opportunity to serve as the associate lighting designer on a stage production, (due to COVID-19), the second show's goals were to become familiar with various lighting softwares that I hadn't encountered thus far.
