Mendi Obadike

The Pink of Stealth (video)

Mendi+Keith Obadike are new media artists whose conceptual Internet artworks, live art, and music have been exhibited and broadcast internationally. They have received commissions from the Whitney Museum of American Art, Yale University, and Electronic Arts Intermix and the New York African Film Festival. Their most recent project, The Pink of Stealth, tells a story of class and race migration and sexual transgression and was inspired by British fox hunting and 1980s teen movies. The project was created for 5.1 surround sound DVD and an Internet component with hypertext variations and a flash game.

“Powering Up/Powering Down” is sponsored in part by the University of California Institute for Research in the Arts (UCIRA), the Center for Research in Computing and the Arts (CRCA), and the UC San Diego Department of Music in connection with the departments of Visual Arts, Music, and Literature at UCSD along with the UC Riverside and Los Angeles campuses.
