August 2017 - Go2 Productions

FAÇADE FESTIVAL 2017 – A Mind-melting Visual Spectacle

Vancouver’s annual public art and projection mapping festival is back – and this year it’s got twice the number of artists and a much larger surface to project onto. FAÇADE Festival 2017 is a week-long showcase of art and digital innovation taking place from September 4th – 10th from 8pm onwards.

The festival is organized by the Burrard Arts Foundation in association with the Vancouver Arts Gallery and will feature the work of 10 Canadian artists projected onto the Georgia street facade of the Vancouver Art Gallery. Go2 is proud to be the official technical partner for the event, once again, and has mentored each artist in our studio, using our miniature 3D model of the Art Gallery for testing.

Go2’s special projection mapping finale will take place on September 10th. Titled “Contradistinction”, it will use contrasting 2D and 3D graphics, precisely-mapped manipulations, and depth illusions to transform the Vancouver Art Gallery into a playground of light and kaleidoscopic movements. Playing with the building’s structural outline, the team of constraint-breakers will be pushing the limits of digital art, technology, and soundscape for a mind-melting spectacle of cross-genre artistic expression.
