The Twilight Zone Project

Christopher Schneider's avatar Christopher Schneider

The Twilight Zone of the 1960's as not only a seminal television series, it was also a discussion of ethics. Every episode was a morality tale, making us confront failures and recognize goodness. It is rich territory for art. I am in the process of making an art piece based on the each episode (or at least the first two seasons). These are more responses to each theme rather than summaries. Would you change your childhood if you could? How much would you sacrifice for others? What is beauty? All these pieces are packed into one room, the more dense the better. In Detroit, I am assembling this in an 11'x14' old doctor's operating room. The intent is to be overwhelming and immersive, giving visitors a unique art experience where the room itself is art made up of art. It includes photography, sculpture, drawings, one video, zines, and assemblage.
