Joe DeMeis was the senior art director for Laboratory, and shared some wonderful stories from the design, development, and installation of the show.
“We put all the money into the sets, costumes, and effects you saw in the show,” art director Joe DeMeis explains, “and when art work and drawings were completed for a design, we did the Art Directors model that would be used do all the final working drawings and bidding for construction. What went into that model you got on stage 99% of the time. That’s how accurate I was in art direction. I wanted to tell the story in 3D, I was – and am – a story teller.”
