Directing / Featured Artist
LA based artist Tommii Lim and Rich Cofinco’s ASIF (As See In the Future) future sneaker brand collaborated on a one night pop up exhibition titled ‘The Absence Of Color‘ in DTLA. The event highlighted and combined the recent works of Tommii Lim’s fresh and bold minimal black and white art with the newly anticipated season of ASIF’s sleek new line integrated through out the three story penthouse space. The pairing of the two within the black and white furnished environment worked as a seamless marriage of art meeting design through a minimal, sleek and monotone visual language. Every detail in the exhibition was hand selected and created to view inside the scope of Tommii Lim and ASIF’s combined worlds. The event was recorded in Virtual Reality and attendees were able to view an interactive 3D VR interview of Tommii Lim immersed in his art work filmed by Steve Tamago Yoon. The over capacity night also had appearances by celebrities like actor Steven Yeun (The Walking Dead), James Roh from Far East Movement, celebrity chef Chris Oh (Seoul Sausage), actor C.S. Lee (Dexter) and a live rooftop performance by up and coming indie synth band Neonderthal.
