The Optics of Memory
An hour-long video-art and sound-art performance installation
Now available for booking!
Kasumi’s newest show, Optics of Memory is an eye-popping mix of vividly psychedelic imagery projected onto three massive screens and hypnotic, immersive electronic music amplified through a state-of-the-art sound system.
Her media phantasmagoria takes the audience on a revelatory journey into the mirrored feedback loop of perception and memory, the well-springs of creativity and artistic exploration.
"I am awestruck over how accurately "Optics of Memory" captures the feeling of anxiety and amazement I have for the interface of perception, personhood and the physical world. Some of my peers and colleagues share this feeling and we applaud what you have created." - Kate Fike, neuroscience student
