Aurora Halal and Sam Rolfes created two vastly different live performances yet both were assisted by futuristic design like light studio Nitemind. Both kept the crowd entranced with the variety of stimulation and beauty that was flowing through each performance.

One of the first events at Moma that started after 9pm in while, Aurora Halal got the colored strobe soaked crowd dancing after Sam Rolfes awed the crowd with collaborators, performance artist Justin Shoulder and DJ Sharp Veins. Who doesnt like a live 3-D performance with projection-mapping!
