New York City's Immersive Surfaces
The Dumbo Arts Festival in Brooklyn is an annual September event celebrating Brooklyn’s presence in the local, national, and international art community.
One of this year’s highlights was a three-part video projection installation that utilised cutting-edge video mapping technology, set against the backdrop of the Manhattan Bridge Anchorage.
Exploring the idea of architectural surfaces as a place of interaction, Immersive Surfaces features more than 20 artworks created under the guidance of LA-based production company Senovva Inc, Brooklyn video curator Leo Kuelbs, and New York based large-scale multimedia specialists, Light Harvest Studios.
Blurring the boundaries between architecture, art, and technology, the installation highlights the increasingly cosier connections between the real and the virtual beyond the art gallery or e-tail scene.
