Paul D. Miller, a.k.a. DJ Spooky, continues his “Reframed” series for the Metropolitan Museum of Art with a multimedia collaboration consisting of a string-quartet performance and digital-animation projections. The piece explores the complexities of the global economy via a case study of the Republic of Nauru, an overmined South Pacific island and tax haven. Aiming to reflect colonial and postcolonial issues in contemporary digital society, Miller’s composition for strings will be performed live during this thought-provoking one-night event.
