Adding dimension to a flat surface, Lauren Clay uses her vinyl wallpaper to add bioluminescent depth and texture to the Zone One entrance and stageside wall.

Lauren Clay's wallpaper installation is created from enlarged images of handmade collages of marbled paper. The liquid pattern of the marbled paper distorts the viewer’s perception of an otherwise flat wall. Clusters of windows in various sizes and shapes are strewn across the wall, creating an added layer of depth and illusion.
