Clifford Ross @ The Dumbo Arts Festival 2013:
For three performances Clifford Ross presented his "Immersive Harmonium Video." This immersive video was projected inside the century-old archway below the Manhattan Bridge with live collaborative music performance by Taikoza, the renowned Japanese drum group. A site-specific work, the colorful, dramatic digital imagery contrasts with its setting and harmonizes with the music.
