The Abstract Series is an ongoing project that sees Fathom collaborate with artists to create immersive, site-specific experiences. Each Abstract will challenge artists to produce large-scale exhibits and performances that audience members can experience concurrently. Abstract aims to blur the boundaries between these experiences and reality.
For our inaugural Abstract, we travel to DC sanctuary Flash, for a sunset engagement. The experience will be led by performances from S.J. Ewing and Dancers, who will use motion capture technology and video projection in conjunction with contemporary dance to address the connection between our intangible interior lives and the physically constructed environments we have built.
The experience will also feature an amorphous 360-degree projection mapping from visual artist Robin Bell, who will transform the main room at Flash.
Music will be spearheaded by a headlining set from French deep house stalwart Sébastian Léger (All Day I Dream), who will be supported with live music from alternative RnB crooner Mr. Daywalker, and sets from DC locals John Swink, Philip Goyette, Jandro, RAFAEL✮ and M_K.
