More about the AirStage

The inside of the AirStage is the artist’s “blank canvas” for this project. It includes an open central space, a seating booth at one end, and a kitchen counter at the other end. False walls on either side of the cabin allow artists to attach and suspend materials. The AirStage has several windows that provide natural light, as well as LED ceiling lights.
