Beaux Arts Ball is an overlapping manifestation of pleasure and design. It is a charitable event with its heels buried in a 19th century desire to transcend the scope of tamed human imagination; a testimony to the feverish cerebral discipline of the original students of the Ecole des Beaux Arts.

Chico NICHOLS: Tangible Projection combines a tangible field condition of translucent strings at a variety of densities with an intangible two dimensional projection. The combination of the strings and the projection allow for the projection, until now a two dimensional medium, to manifest itself in three dimensions. The different densities of the strings create high density areas that act as a screen to catch the projection and are placed in combination with low density areas that allow a person to occupy the space of the projection.
