For two nights only, the Transformer Station in Ohio City/Hingetown will be screening Cleveland-based Kasumi’s latest video installation. SHOCKWAVES is described as, “A hallucinatory trip into a man’s subconscious mind in the moments before his death.” So, a totally uplifting experience best enjoyed while on a date or with family.

Kasumi is a professor of Photography at Cleveland Institute of Art, and an internationally renowned artist. For SHOCKWAVES, Kasumi utilized over 25,000 public domain film samples, dance choreography, animation and rotoscoped clips to explore the nature of memory and our collective consciousness.

"We are proud and excited to be the first museum venue to present SHOCKWAVES as part of our continuing effort to introduce new work by artists of international reputation,” says Transformer Station founder (and former Interim Director of the Cleveland Museum of Art) Fred Bidwell. “In our gallery space Kasumi's media installation will be a uniquely compelling and immersive experience."
Kasumi will be on hand for a reception on Sunday, Feb. 1 at 5 p.m. SHOCKWAVES will be screening continuously from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. on Saturday and Sunday. Admission is free and open to the public.
