Her media phantasmagoria which debuted at The Akron Art Museum on September 29, 2017, takes the audience on a journey into the mirrored feedback loop of perception and memory. Kasumi is well known for her daring artistic experiences that blend her unique filmmaking, musical, and artistic talents into work that has been described as “wildly innovative,” “mind-blowing,” “brilliant,” and “transcendent” and that “breaks all boundaries in media art.”
Kasumi’s performance culminated an art filled evening of live performances and short films as part of the High Arts Festival's KNIGHT AT THE MUSEUM held at the Akron Art Museum.
The event was sponsored by the GAR Foundation, Haslinger Foundation, Downtown Akron Partnership, Akron Art Museum, Kent State University’s College of Architecture and Environmental Design, and made possible by the John S. and James L. Knight Foundation’s Knight Arts Challenge. Video projection and sound amplification were provided by Q Audio Visual.
