MOSES SUMNEY | græ RESIDENCY

In partnership with Amazon Music

To coincide with the release of his double album græ, I partnered with Amazon Music to create an installation for Moses Sumney's month-long artist residency at Bootleg Theater. The space—where Sumney began his career as a live performer six years prior—was transformed into an immersive listening lounge with 3D Audio on an Echo Studio. 

The installation explored the spectrum of greyness in regard to color, displacement, interstitial space, and marginal identity. It featured previously unreleased images and video of Sumney, as well as scans of the original hand-written lyrics from græ.
