June 5, 2013 by SoWal Staff
Digital Graffiti at Alys Beach is SoWal's annual projection art festival, where artists use the latest technologies to project art onto the town’s massive white walls.This year's festival takes place on June 7 from 8:30 - 11:00 p.m. and June 8 from 8:30 - midnight.
Sometimes referred to as “Photon Bombing,” “Guerilla Projection” or “Urban Projection,” underground artists around the globe have already been using the latest design, animation and projection technologies to cast dynamic images onto skyscrapers and other urban spots as a means of artistic expression. But Digital Graffiti at Alys Beach is the first outdoor festival specifically organized to celebrate and showcase these unique talents.
Each year the festival attracts digital artists, filmmakers, musicians, interactive designers, photographers, producers and fans of art, technology and architecture. Thousands of dollars in cash prizes are awarded to artists, with digital submissions being received from places such as Israel, Austria, Canada, Germany, London, India, France, Italy and China.
For two evenings, Alys Beach opens its doors, courtyards and pedestrian paths to more than 3,000 guests. Digital Graffiti 2013 is a two-evening event, allowing for a more personal experience each evening.
Friday night attendees will have the opportunity to stroll the town in a more subdued setting while being up close and personal with the amazing works, and interacting with the artists who created the pieces along with volunteer docents. Saturday night will continue to be the party that it has always been displaying art and ending with the after party at Caliza Pool.
