S. Katy’s Tucker’s work has been recognized by various industry publications as well as arts and peer reviewers. The following mentions are for solo work as well as collaborative work:

  • From DC Theatre Scene

    "Conductor Philippe Auguin and Projection Designer S. Katy Tucker hold the reins of their complementary “steeds” of musicians and machines for the over two and a half hours of The Rhinegold, both of them demonstrating enormous “elemental” power and prowess."

  • From Bloomberg News

    "Searing video images created by S. Katy Tucker in her Met debut show us the folly of his crusade. His weeping soldiers reveal their wounds as they look out at us -- the victims of his grand vision and that of so many other megalomaniacs." -Manuela Hoelterhoff

  • From The New York Times

    "Ms. Zambello’s concept, which employs engrossing video projections, was at its most inspired in Gotterdammerung. During the mysterious prologue, the three Norns who weave the rope of destiny look like computer lab technicians in aquatic-green dresses and black leather aprons, and their rope is a thick computer cable, which snaps, causing cosmic system failure." -Anthony Tommasini

  • From The Wall Street Journal

    "Designer Peter J. Davison’s set featured two metal skeletons of the towers that lurked in the background until the time came for their close-up, while S. Katy Tucker’s projections on scrims fluidly created the different locales with the aid of Mark McCullough’s lighting."

  • From The Washington Post

    "Zambello and her design team (Michael Yeargan, Catherine Zuber, Mark McCullough, Jan Hartley and S. Katy Tucker) deftly mix video, touches of Americana, old-fashioned stage illusion and suggestive costumes to create a world that isn’t explicitly American, or mythological, but a subtle combination of both. Although eclectic in its material, the production is also cohesive, progressing from a leafy-green world of clean water and innocence in Rhinegold to a soot-filled industrial wasteland in Gotterdammerung."

  • From The Sydney Morning Herald

    "On this occasion, the experience was visually supplemented by swirling images exploring key themes – water, blood and tumult, all reflected in the Dutchman's face – devised by New York artist S. Katy Tucker projected on sail-shaped screens. Tucker's images drew inspiration from the work's dark sound world (with emphasis on the lower male voice) and turbulent movement, discreetly augmenting the musical ideas without distraction, while leaving the thrilling peak moments to singer and player." -Peter McCallum

  • From Her Mom

    "S. Katy Tucker is the most talented projections designer I've ever met."
