Digital arts exhibition set to return to Florida

on Friday,February 27,2009 22:02


It seems fitting that in the digital age even cultural events acquire a high-tech dimension, and an upcoming festival in a Florida beach town will continue this pioneering trend.

An innovative projection art festival, Digital Graffiti will take place for the second time in Alys Beach in the early summer. Artists will use the latest technology to project their works onto the town''s famous white walls using them as "a blank canvas," according to Kelli Arnold, Alys Beach''s events coordinator.

"Digital Graffiti explores how design, technology and architecture can intertwine to create entirely new art forms," says Arnold, adding "Alys Beach opens its doors … to innovative companies and ground-breaking artists who fuse these three elements to literally transform our entire town into a living work of art."

Participating artists will submit short digital videos, Adobe Flash animations, Photoshop creations, YouTube clips as well as still photography. The organizers anticipate that many works will use green themes as a source of inspiration.

The festival reflects the growing trend among underground artists around the world to use the latest design, animation and projection technologies to cast dynamic images onto urban structures. It is expected to attract digital artists, filmmakers, musicians, interactive designers and photographers from around the world.

Alys Beach is a new town located in Florida''s panhandle, and its architecture has been inspired by Bermuda and the family courtyard homes of Antigua and Guatemala.
