- 10,000 Peacock Feathers in Foaming Acid / Evelina Domnitch + Dmitry Gelfand
Inspect the unusual behavior of light through giant projections of the molecular dynamics that occur within soap bubbles, as well as the mind-boggling phenomena of non-linear optics.
- Covert Agent / Mark Steger
Gather in awe to witness performance artist Mark Steger’s homage to the human body, performed entirely while suspended in air.
- DJ Sets from Kid606, Nicolas Bougaïeff, and One Child Policy
