• 3-D DIGITAL MAPPING– Action-packed, larger than life projection is the anchor entertainment during the opening and closing weekends of the festival. Imagine a large scale, three dimensional video on the side of a building in downtown Titusville.
• Holographic and Lenticular Exhibit is a collection not available anywhere else in the United States. Coming here directly from the UK, this exhibit, called “Dystopia”, will be accompanied by Martin Richardson, who worked with rock star David Bowie on a most significant piece of innovative work which will be featured in the exhibition.
• Digital Artists from around Florida will display digital work on large screens. Several exhibiting artists will be on site to answer questions or intrigue festival goers with their concepts and processes.
• Hands-on interactive activities, such as digital graffiti walls and beam your own art opportunities are planned. Special demonstrations by guest artists, international artist interactions, surprise street art and additional digital hands-on options are in planning stages.
