Special Event: LIGHTFAST

October 28, 2022 @ 7:00 PM - 8:30 PM

Museum of Craft and Design

What changes when artists decide to cross creative borders together and venture into different medium territories?

Join MCD for a special event showcase of the body of work born of this question and the conversations between a composer, a writer, and two visual artists. Experience the journey they traveled, both together and independently, exploring different forms of audio, visual, and narrative art that ultimately evolved into the foundation for LIGHTFAST.

This full sensory multimedia collaboration invites viewers to consider emotional states of being and the human relationship with nature through sculptural installations, an interactive handmade codex, immersive imagery and projections, live cello improvisation, spoken word, and recorded layers of instrumental and natural sounds.

Two night event run, pre-registration requested
Friday, October 28,  7:00 PM–8:30 PM: TICKETS
Saturday, October 29, 5:00 PM–6:30 PM: TICKETS
