The Kava Lounge
At electronic-music nights at Kava, some of San Diego’s most forward-thinking visual artists project homemade effects and video loops all over the dance floor. CutMod, a video jockey, musician, and UCSD student, designed an iPad app to control his custom visuals wirelessly. Similarly, Wind Spirit creates unique controllers to manipulate hexagram-based projections. Beat alchemist Mystery Cave projects at monthly events, such as Doo Doo Roo, which also features live art by Andre Power (Art in the Park) and guests. Sam Lopez of the Stay Strange “outsider art and music” night likens their fliers to Raymond Pettibon’s work with Black Flag/SST.
