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.
This video also contains footage from the opening weekend celebration where an independent artist from Tulsa, Chris Wollard, the creator of the robot shown, brought his art car to the party. Chris travels around to various events with his giant robot, so to clarify, that’s not something you can expect when visiting Mix-Tape.
