Complementing BLOOM’s ongoin mythology I created an installation and performance piece based on the Atlantic Transformerz’ video work. The models repeated the process of blackening the black body and adorning it which was the basis for the Atlantic Transformerz video series. During this performance they continued adding black materials resulting in sculptural forms made of different black materialities. The Atlantic Transformerz video provided the backdrop on the walls surrounding them.
