Saturday June 29, 2013: 9:45 pm to 11:45 pm -- Top of the Park
Become a Superhero!
Created by Spanish arts collective Wildbytes, Superhero is an interactive projection mapping experience in which participants are transformed into superheroes using Kinect cameras and customized software.
A digital art exhibition at Top of the Park over multiple nights (Friday June 28 - Sunday, June 30 - 9:45 - 11:45 pm), festival-goers will be able to fly over the historic facade of the Burton Memorial Tower while enjoying a number of super powers, which they can control with natural gestures. These powers included throwing light balls, becoming gigantic or tiny, and, of course, flying.
Wildbytes is an art and technology studio based in Madrid and New York. Their work is focused on creating engaging, interactive experiences that are often displayed as large-scale projections in public events. Producing new technology in the process, the main goal of Wildbytes' projects is to create immersive experiences that trigger emotion through participation. Wildbytes' interdisciplinary work has been exhibited in institutions around the world including Ars Electronica (Austria), FILE (International Festival of Electronic Language).
This event is for all ages.
