Had been eyeing this basketball court in Rogers, Arkansas for the past few years. I knew with a little creativity it could play a bigger role in the park. The concept was to play off the classic basketball game "around the world". From there the love of Mars Blackmon and Michael Jordan commercials and the movie Space Jam, the concept was born. We then enlisted the help of artist Graham Edwards to bring it to the next level. Swish.
Abboriginal rang in 2017 at Crystal Bridges Museum of American Art. We were responsible for main stage design which included custom artwork created by local artist Anthony Davis that was used to projection map upon. We built a chandelier and custom light boxes to round out the visual look. The musical acts were RozenBridge a local cello and guitar group that really has some impressive tunes in their repertoire and DJ Jumbii a long time friend of Abboriginal. Here are a few videos from the evening to give you some scope of the production.
Excited to curate and participate in a video focused art show at Bottle Rocket Gallery. I help manage the building and help find and help artists in the community. It's been a lot of fun so far and we have managed to really shake it up in #Bentonville. July 1st Abboriginal and a group of other artists are installing various forms of video sculpture and interactive installations. Check out the event page here to learn more.
Join Abboriginal on March 5th at the Meteor Theater to support the Bentonville Community Radio Station as they raise funds to build the station this summer. We will be spinning some reggae classics, instrumental hip-hop, and underground deep bass gems to start spring with a step. Peep the Facebook event here.
