SHIFT Curator: Kelsey Karper
SHIFT is a fully-immersive, experiential art installation that challenges the participant to physically explore the full-sensory environment. Factory Obscura, a collective of artists and community builders, formed earlier this year to produce large scale installations that require new forms of audience engagement. This is the first such installation.
Spurred by the desire to cause a shift in thinking, Factory Obscura has launched a long-term vision for growth with SHIFT at Current Studio. This installation is the first leading the collective toward a future permanent location in Oklahoma City.
FACTORY OBSCURA SPONSORSHIP
Sponsorships support the creation of SHIFT at Current Studio, including materials and artist payments. It also provides seed money for the future Factory Obscura permanent location.

Top-secret location in OKC
Just before Midnight on November 4, 2017, Factory Obscura and guests gathered for an intimate and extraordinary celebration of our artists and the completion of our first installation, SHIFT at Current Studio. The Midnight Dinner was the first Factory Obscura production, offering an immersive, interactive, and performative experience for a limited number of participants. Guests wore their most elaborate, bizarre, or mysterious attire and were transported into a magical, alternate world.
Dinner proceeds allowed artists to be paid fairly for their work, and helped keep the SHIFT exhibition open with free admission at Current Studio.
