(Pics) Sumi Ink Club: Building Community Through Art
Performance art group Lucky Dragons use their Sumi Ink Club project to build community through collaborative art.
Sometimes the best projects are the simplest. Lucky Dragons are renowned for their art projects, performances and their ability to create a temporary community between audience members. Often in their performances, this takes the form of using custom sound objects like Wrong Spectrum, in which a video projector and blank cd-rs are utilized to enable a synesthetic light and sound experience controlled by the crowd.
However, their work is not limited to sound-based projects. Last Saturday at London’s Auto-Italia project space in conjunction with Upset the Rhythm, Lucky Dragons used their Sumi Ink Club project to build community through collaborative art.
