David Wightman




Extreme Animals - Extreme Animals is the 10 year long collaboration between David Wightman and Jacob Ciocci, founding member of the Paper Rad art collective. Live shows are a multimedia barrage of video, sculpture, and live music. They recently have toured with Anamanaguchi and Yacht and have done remixes for Pictureplane and Ssion. The group has toured all over North America and Europe playing spaces ranging from the Museum of Modern Art and the Hirshhorn Museum to underground warehouses.
