Down A Little Dirt Road With Erin Bregman and Just Theater

Screenprinted room

Screenprint on laminate flooring, cardboard boxes
600ft2 | 2011

Project Description A 600ft2 continuous screenprint installed in a small theater as part of the set for Just Theater’s production of Down A Little Dirt Road by Erin Bregman.  Designed to completely envelop the room’s floor and part of its wall, the piece was hand printed on commercial vinyl flooring material and secured with gaffer’s tape.
Concept The set was designed to enclose the audience in the world of the play, where earthquakes and dreams coalesce in the increasingly fraught psyches of the characters.  Imagery for the print was collected from slip-fault diagrams, technical maps, and geological analyses.  The images were combined and patterned on the vinyl material one stencil at a time. This was part of my work as the designer of the play’s set, which also featured walls, passageways, and secret chambers fabricated from 150 corrugated boxes.

I didn’t think it was going to take a supercomputer and a team of accountants to figure it out.

“Jon Fischer's set of packing-box towers and moving door frames [is] creative.” SF Chronicle review//June 14, 2011.

“Jon Fischer's set, innovatively using cardboard boxes as both the trembling walls and a sense of the moving and impermanence in Alice and her dad's life, is splendid” Berkeley Daily Planet review//June 22, 2011

Looks like I am doing graphics and set for Erin's next play, which is being produced in Berkeley by Just Theater.  My first duty was to design this postcard.  It's supposed to get you interested in the connection between earthquakes and dreams, ideally without invoking Tori Amos.
