Mixed media installation

Dimensions Variable



Based on conversations on collaboration, ‘Loop Digga’ is a series of responses to the “loop” as a starting point. The loop can be tangible or intangible, moving across mediums – a provocation which echoes sampling – creation of a loop – a repetitive pattern for creating sound as found in the methodologies of hip hop.
