Drift (2022) is a two-channel video installation featuring two musicians playing an original, reactive composition as they are set adrift in the Florida Keys on separate, custom-built rafts. Saltwater from the site was collected and used to crystalize on the instruments and walls of the gallery.
Drift was commissioned by Locust Projects and supported, in part, by a Foundation for Contemporary Arts Emergency Grant. Composition by Danny Clay. Performed by Benita Dzhurkova and João Da Fraga. Cinematography by Alex Markow. Audio Mixing by John Howell. Fabrication Assistants: Rachael Starbuck and Andy Forbes. Special Thanks to Bill Haddad and Zen and Carrie Mayo.
