Passage :: Migration

Klip Collective's Ricardo Rivera was invited to be part of Monument Lab, a public art and history project produced by Mural Arts in Philadelphia.  The installation, Passage :: Migration channels the surnames of South Philadelphia’s generations of immigrants into one immersive experience. “The names pass over and around the viewer in waves; projected on translucent planes of fabric and smoke, creating a floating sensation. By entering, the viewer is an active part of the installation, as the projections wash over their body. Like this country, once you enter, you are a part of it,” says Rivera. The work was installed for a special one-night-only performance in Marconi Plaza, in South Philadelphia.

Klip Collective transformed the pedestrian bridge over Filbert Street into a site-specific, immersive light passage that includes sweeping light washes and deconstructed video patterns to create a dynamic portal of articulated light. This piece can be enjoyed experientially from within the tunnel, or visually from the sidewalk below. The use of color and motion through light evokes emotion and transforms our sense of place.

This cinematic landscape of light and sound incorporating video projection and audio design by Klip Collective was realized in its first execution during Data Garden’s annual Switched-On Garden on October 14, 2012.  

The Switched-On Garden 002 was an interactive exhibition held at North America’s oldest botanic garden, Bartram’s Garden in Philadelphia, in the fall of 2012 during the citywide festival, DesignPhiladelphia. Music label Data Garden, who distribute their recordings in packaging that can grow into a living plant after being planted in the ground, invited artists including Klip Collective to create original works exploring the relationship between plants, music and technology for this unique event.

Desert forms, dynamic light and sound unite in a mesmerizing display of motion and color. Cactus and desert become a living canvas in this nighttime experience, taking visitors on an immersive journey through the garden using light and original music.

Electric Desert includes seven discrete installations by Klip Collective. Using projection and lighting, Klip transformed cacti, succulents, and rock formations into a living nocturnal canvas, using the Garden and its unique landscape as a backdrop for new and exciting audio and visual experiences.

Collaborating with W+ K, Klip was creatively involved from conception to execution. The stunt involved building custom animations of the pier structure and water projections, as well as directing the live-action elements for the Melo hologram. Klip led the massive production in scouting and permitting two riverside piers, conducting environmental studies of fish and plant life, managing marine teams, and gaining multi-agency approval.

Vacant America: BOK Building

Visual residue from BOK Technical School's past

Vacant America is the vision of Klip Collective artists Ricardo Rivera and Josh James to create a series of visual installations about our changing built environment. Through their residency at Bok, they are exploring interpretive storytelling through immersive mediums, such as installation art and virtual reality. With its first installment in the former Girls’ Gymnasium, the duo seeks to capture the history and tangible memories contained in the former school.

"At Bok, we want to peel back the layers of history and tangible memories contained inside this former school. We sourced as much as we could from the building, such as old yearbooks, desks, chairs, transparencies, vinyl records, and other teaching materials. We poured over interviews from alumni and former staff.

What we present is a meditative state of audio and visual chaos. The thousands of names of people that came through this school, the geometry slides that were projected on classroom walls, and the sheet music of the school song that once echoed in the halls."
