Factory Obscura, the artist collective responsible for SHIFT, BEYOND, and other interactive art experiences in Oklahoma City, has opened phase one of “Mix-Tape,” their first permanent installation. The collective is creating the new immersive, visual, auditory, and tactile art experience inside the iconic art complex, The Womb, in Oklahoma City’s Automobile Alley.
Through the Mix-Tape experience, the artists of Factory Obscura will produce a 20th-century version of the classic audio autobiography, creating immersive artistic representations of songs that speak to the artists’ journeys as individuals and as a collective.
In this Uncovering Oklahoma episode, I interviewed Kelsey Karper and Hugh Meade about this experience. In telling of their journey so far, I’ve included b-roll of their past two exhibitions. I’ve been saving the footage for a feature documentary that I will mostly like produce when they open their own location.
