[Dec 14 – 17] Arena Triptych by Iki Nakagawa

Arena Triptych was inspired by Walter Dundervill’s work “ARENA”, which I found both intoxicating and hypnotic.  I want to offer these feelings of personal joy by creating this new work:  I use footage from ARENA mixed with footage of my own, shot around the same time, to create a visual and sonic collage for a sensual experience.
