48 HOUR RESIDENCY
Rodell Warner + DJ Afifa: "BINARY SOLVED"

NLS is excited to present Binary Solved, an experimental visual-sound intervention by DJ Afifa and Rodell Warner over the course of two nights.





Rodell Warner and DJ Afifa collaborate to create an interactive sound art installation for the NLS 48 Hour Residency. Warner and Afifa use the two-day format of the residency, to play with and attempt to blow perceived dichotomies of existence. Binary Solved is an undertaking by the two artists to link the real with the imagined, the other with the self, the digital with natural, and, ultimately, existence with freedom. Each night of the residency performance functions as a counterpoint/contrast to the other.
