The Neck is a Bridge to the Body is Benton C Bainbridge’s last project with Glowing Pictures. Bainbridge and Bush created a visual accompaniment to King’s performance, projection mapped onto her guitar and an immersive backdrop. After its premiere at BRIC studios in Brooklyn, Bainbridge and Bush’s visual score has been performed by Beth Wexler and is still being booked for engagements around the world.
“Collaborating with Glowing Pictures to turn an all-white guitar of plastic resin into a sensory projector, [Kaki King] gives the instrument a life-like dimension you shouldn’t miss. I walked in even-keeled, and I left vulnerable and in need of a gentle celebratory hug. This show is amazing! There’s literally nothing else like it.” – Guitar World
