Log line: Living Geometry allows people to interact with a mathematical, metaphysical tree of life that holds a collective history of the known universe.

Log line:''The joke has it: remembering you set out to drain the swamp is hard when you're up to your ass in alligators.'' -- David Mamet, Three Uses of the Knife
Making Maestro is a website-based documentary about the middle part of every coming of age story – that two minute montage sequence which quickly and painlessly shows the hero gaining all of their skills. The site makes use of interactive elements to allow users to navigate over forty hours of footage of artist Tyler Schwartz slowly and painfully learning to play the violin from scratch. The piece playfully examines the time needed to gain a skill, while also showcasing the heart, dedication and will-power we all have within us to get there.
As a companion to the website, the installation features several short, live performances on violin by the artist.
Key Crew: Benjamin Dunst, Billimarie Robinson
