The Oblivion Ball ArtJam, Tokyo 2007
In 2007 Underworld created ‘The Oblivion Ball’ at the Makuhari Messe – a mini festival of music, art and cinema – during which, a live painting performance took place. Over 16 hours 50 x 10 metres of wall were covered with work by members of design collective Tomato, Underworld & friends. This was the first work by the collective that came to be known as ArtJam.
A live CD of the event was released, Underworld’s ‘Book Of Jam 3’ documents the event.
The film clip, was directed by Simon Taylor, edited by Justin Stokes, with music by Mark Isham (‘Sympathy and Acknowledgment’)
