Robert Wilson, and others―in an interactive installation. The exhibition also includes weekly performances by
extraordinary group of artists, as well as other performance-focused video works by Somma.
"'Phosphene Variations,' the enchanting mix of live and digitally altered dancing" --Star Ledger (full review)
