90 William Leavitt
William Leavitt: Random Trees, 1990, Performance view, Santa Monica Museum of Art

Leavitt transformed the museum’s main gallery into a theater with row seating, a proscenium stage, and a set resembling a suburban living room for this one-act play. An eccentric Rube Goldbergian contraption, engineered by the main character to embody his personal cosmology, became a source of conflict among the five characters, whose various needs were contradictorily affected by the protagonist’s creation.
