About Invisible

Formed in Greensboro in 2006, Invisible is artist and instrument maker Mark Dixon, musician and video producer Bart Trotman, professional typist Jodi Staley, instrumentalist Jonathan Henderson and electronics wizard Fred Snider. Invisible’s unique combination of installation art with musical performance has found warm reception at southeastern venues including the NC Museum of Art, the Second Street Gallery in Charlottesville, Elsewhere Artist Collaborative in Greensboro, SECCA, The Ackland Museum of Art, CAM Raleigh and the Cucalorus Film Festival in Wilmington.

Invisible is an experimental multimedia music performance collective whose work is described as “an exploded view of the strange romance between humans and technology,” and “a love/hate drama set in a landscape of contraptions.” Invisible’s The New Obsolete offers audiences an amalgamation of sound making inventions, like the Selectric Piano, a typewriter that electromechanically controls a piano— and Elsewhere’s Roof, a drip driven drum machine. These machines are played by humans during installation performances alongside video, found sound and electronics.
