David Gumbs’ diptych interactive video installations speak about his black creole and french identities, environmental flux and global migrations. By presenting two large scale real-time video projections on Davidson’s building and on the Actor’s Playhouse. Coral Gables’ street and viewer’s movements, will trigger random computer-generated animations and patterns inspired by David Gumbs’ Caribbean cultural, fauna and flora heritage.
These new media innovative videos are the bridge between nature, science, technology, cultural heritage and art. Beyond their colorful aesthetics, David Gumbs’ work is a token to lost souls due to the Covid pandemic and to social injustices.
