- Dreamcatchr - An Opera by Lily AkermanFor this project, I was asked by RIAM to create a live poster and print deliverables, such as static poster, program booklet, etc, for their upcoming Opera, named 'Dreamcatchr.' In the script, the protagonist, Jane, undergoes a loss of sanity as she develops the coding for an app that can help you relive dreams, so there was naturally an inclination to use this counterplay between dreams and technology in the imagery I made for the project deliverables.
