The Metamorphosis or Fear is a project incorporating painting, colored light, video, movement, sound, music, and social collaboration.

In 1918, at the end of the first world war, Rudolf Steiner gave the musician, composer, and scenery designer Jan Stuten (1890-1948) a task: to create a new, alternative color-art combining sound, colored light, color-movement, and colored shadows in a way that would leave the viewer free to interpret what was seen. Steiner gave Stuten in 1919 the theme Metamorphoses of Fear for the first work of this new art form: a theme related to people’s experiences from the just-ended world war.

Now a group of artists has come together to take this work further as a collaboration between people and their various media. They will work together for the next year experimenting and investigating this work, as well as planning an exhibit and a series of performances in late 2024.

The Chrysalis group will present some developments, share some music, and encourage discussion on the theme. Led by the artists of the “Metamorphosis of Fear Project,” this group will take place over four hour-long weekly sessions.

The group includes:
Loki Anthony ~ Animation
Frank Agrama ~ Colored light
Zuri Burns ~ Overall support
Soren Dietzel ~ Music
Zoï Doehrer ~ Music
Kai Naor ~ Music
Sampsa Pirtola ~ Video
Matt Sawaya ~ Spoken word/music
Laura Summer ~ Painting
Jen Zimberg ~ Music
