BEN ZAMORA (lighting designer) is continuously creating immersive installations and sculptures that challenge the relationship of the viewer to their environment. Primarily light based, his work moves seamlessly between performance and installation art. Zamora has recently created large-scale light installations for the Park Avenue Armory, Frye Art Museum, Design Miami/Art Basel, the Coachella Valley Music and Arts Festival, and the Suyama Space, among others.
Most recently, Zamora created a light installation for the Park Avenue Armory in New York. Towering 40 feet tall and 160 feet wide, this light installation was integrated into the production FLEXN, with choreographer Regg Roc and director Peter Sellars.
Zamora has collaborated on various projects with other artists including video artist Bill Viola, Gronk, Eleanor Antin, Kronos Quartet with Degenerate Art Ensemble, Jacques Heim with Diavolo Architecture in Motion, and the renowned architecture firm, Olson Kundig Architects.
Zamora’s projects have been seen at venues around the world, including Royal Festival Hall and The Barbican Center in London, the Mariinsky Theatre in Russia, the Hammer Museum in Los Angeles, Lincoln Center for the Performing Arts, Stockholm’s Baltic Sea Festival, the Helsinki Festival, the Berliner Festspiele, the Lucerne Festival in Switzerland, Walt Disney Concert Hall in Los Angeles, DeDoelen in The Netherlands, and Salle Pleyel in Paris, among many others. With director Peter Sellars, Zamora has implemented designs for projects including The Tristan Project, The Desdemona Project, Orango with the Los Angeles Philharmonic, and a European tour of John Adams’ The Gospel According to the Other Mary.
