The result of that inspiration was the Lumonics Theater. The performance space they built was composed of 50 sculptures, a battery of projectors, lasers, and the spontaneous creativity that transforms technology into virtuoso performance art. The entire performance was designed so that no two are alike. This book describes the more than thirty year history and development of their theater from its beginnings in the 1960s through its final days in 2003.
