Deltree / One Million Bones

June 7 – 10th, 2013

Deltree is a media production company based in New Orleans and New York. They recently partnered with one million bones which is a public installation and educational experience meant to raise people’s awareness of genocide and its human costs. Over a weekend in June over a million plaster and clay bones were laid out on the national mall to make people aware of the horrors of large scale war. Deltree helped document this and I served as a production assistant on the project. Some of my duties included:

●Interviewing and filming volunteers and witnesses to see how the installation affected them.

●Constructing California reflector, audio equipment and lights.
