WAVE: Light + Water + Sound @ Blue River Plaza and the Arts District begins Thursday May 31st. More Information.
A four-day festival featuring interactive artworks, temporary installations and musical performances in and around the Blue River Plaza, transforming the river, bridges and waterfront area into outdoor canvasses and exhibition spaces.
Some of the amazing events;
Angels of Freedom is a social installation that invites visitors to photograph themselves as angels with brightly lit wings and halos. The project contains a deep underlying message discouraging discrimination through interaction. Five giant wings with white halos encourage people to turn into angels in a few simple steps through the power of photography and social media.
A kaleidoscopic celebration of color and light, Aura is composed of tens of thousands of hand-painted and cut acrylic paintings on thin plastic. These paintings are woven together and lit theatrically to create an immersive experience for viewers.
Les Luminéoles is an aerial ballet of colorfully lit helium kites that dance in the wind over the Blue River each evening. The kites take the forms of carps and dragonflies, and each creature was piloted by a single person residing in large, blooming flower on the ground that lights up with each flight.
LightCycles is an event that encourages local cyclists to light up their bikes for a parade through the WAVE exhibition site. Riders should gather between 7-8pm at Breck Bike Guides (411 S. Main) with their pre-decorated bikes, or gear up onsite with free glow swag, and ride from 8-9pm.
Elantica is an off-grid light sculpture made of solar panels and e-waste materials like recycled circuit boards. Our world creates a digital version of reality, and beyond the rather computerized aspect, an effective materialization takes place. Natural rock formations are turning into virtual material; the human mind and body get hardwired extensions; fauna and flora are replaced by artificial artifacts.
There is a whole lot more. Call me with any questions.
