Puppet Heap was chosen to build multiple character marionettes for French Conceptual Artist Pierre Huyghe’s 2004 film This Is Not A Time For Dreaming. Huyghe’s puppet opera retells the history of architect Le Corbusier and his struggle to build Harvard University’s Carpenter Center for the Visual Arts. The allegorical fable explores the fate of creative commissions within the institution of a university.
