Collaborating on a special audiovisual experience, Factory Installed 2019 artist Patte Loper and musician Andrew Ranaudo are creating connections between the anthropological and the extraterrestrial for a special performance. It will feature live music by Ranaudo in a lounge activated by video and special effects by Loper. As a reflection of the artists’ mutual interest in seeking philosophical answers to human contributions to climate change, the effort is meant as a joyful celebration of the HOPE humans can bring to large issues. We dream, we want, we demand a better future than is possible with the status quo.
In the intimate space of the Wexler Room at Mattress Factory's Monterey Annex, the hour long performance will create a communal and meditative environment for all.
