About This Performance

As the visual and performance worlds continue to collide, Kyle Loven is a difficult artist to categorize. An object maker with theatrical designs, his Rube Goldberg-esque Loss Machine unearths a world of lost items, misplaced thoughts and fractured journeys all housed within an intricately detailed set. Digging through the layers of the everyday and the fantastical, this piece poignantly displays a narrative of discovery and loss from the drama of imagery.
