OBLSK is a collective of media artists Pelham Johnston, Brandon Reichard and eve Warnock who are working with local Columbus visual and events merchandising company ZenGenius for this special installation.
OBLSK consists of a team of artists/inventors who came together to create interactive art and technology installations and provide powerful multi-sensory experiences. Their areas of expertise include video production, projection mapping, interactive electronic and mechanical engineering, costume and set design, storytelling, and more. OBLSK works with clients who envision their message delivered in an innovative way, unconstrained by traditional ideas of media. Learn more at OBLSKinc.com.
