The FUTRA X UNION ARTIST-IN-RESIDENCE PROJECT begins with the audio visual design group CLOAKING. Working predominately in real-time video or generative visuals, they create site specific installations using projection mapping and audio reactive content combined with architecture and sound. Over the past year CLOAKING has appeared in most major U.S. cities and is regularly programming and performing at parties in the LA underground. A recent performance at The Regent for the DAIS RECORDS’ 10 YEAR ANNIVERSARY received rave reviews – the visuals set the tone and turned the evening into a concept.
We are very excited for this first FUTRA x UNION visual arts and music collaboration. For the kick-off event, CLOAKING is creating a projection mapping installation titled PHOSPHOR that will debut in the NOISE ROOM on Friday, September 15th at Decibel & Union presents Kenny Larkin and John Tejada. The installation will consist of suspended sculptures with signature CLOAKING visuals in green and blue hues inspired by the P1 phosphor on early monochrome monitors. More information on Friday’s DECIBEL & UNION event with Detroit native Kenny Larkin and the very special guest John Tejada can be found here.
FUTRA is excited to announce an ongoing artist-in-residence at UNION — essentially where an art gallery and club come together. FUTRA will curate and feature visual artists in the many rooms at UNION. The artwork will be on display on a semi-permanent basis ranging from one night to several months depending on each artist and installation. We are looking for art that can be experienced in a club environment: VIDEO, FILM, LIGHT-BASED, INSTALLATION, EXPERIMENTAL ART AND TECHNOLOGY, SCULPTURE, 2D AND MIXED MEDIA that is visible in a dark setting. Contact firstname.lastname@example.org with your questions and proposals.
