DESCRIPTION

Although largely known as a visual artist, Sanford Biggers uses sound and music as a central element in his work, which is currently on view at CAF. Biggers presents a new unique mash-up featuring Los Angeles-based DJ Jahi Sundance, live video mixing, and local ensemble Gamelan Sinar Surya. Drawing from ancient African and Buddhist musical traditions, stream of consciousness, hip hop culture, and projected images, he will offer a collective audience interaction relating back to the Buddhist concept of interconnectedness (in that many people have touched the work and with every new touch, each person becomes connected to one another in a real, but subtle way). Co-presented by Gamelan Sinar Surya and The Brotherhood of Santa Barbara.
