We recently saw Kanye West's Glow in the Dark Tour in Montreal, and we'll start by saying it was fantastic. It's basically a one-man performance piece, but if that conjures up images of a dude on a blank stage with a chair reciting some monologue, well, au contraire. The set design is fantastic, and left us feeling very inspired.
Not a great image, we know, but maybe it gives you the idea
Probably our favorite part was the Noguchi-like "shooting stars" that changed colors and had faces (we think) projected onto them, reminiscent of the work of video artist Tony Oursler. It got us thinking about how pretty a collection of circular paper lanterns in differing shapes can look in a room, and reminded us of this post from a few months ago. We also think it might be nice to try them outside (or inside, why not?) with blue bulbs when entertaining. Or maybe inside with a mix of warm-toned bulbs in pinks and yellows... lots of possibilities, and we've got Kanye to thank for 'em.
