Invisible was founded by North Carolina artist Mark Dixon who recently gave a lecture at the Randolph Arts Guild. Mark Dixon is one part contemporary performance artist, one part mad-scientist-musician, and one part recycled re-invision-er. When describing the performance one could say that it is a Rube Goldberg like mechanical orchestra. According to RAG Executive Director Derrick Sides, “This will be unlike anything you’ve ever seen in the Sunset Theatre. You will leave amazed inspired and ready to disassemble your major household appliances.”
