Dalton was commissioned by choreographer Christopher Wheeldon to create a stage set at Sadler's Wells, offering him an entry point into the world of dance. This opportunity paved the way for subsequent collaborations with esteemed institutions such as The Royal Opera House and Grange Park Opera.
These projected installations are created for specific locations to engage audiences with their surroundings both physically and conceptually.
Dalton's first commissioned work was to create a work for Kay Saatchi, since then he has gone on to paint works in private homes worldwide. The aim of each work is to create a sense of place: A fixed point in the free flowing narrative of life.
