Enter iMapp Bucharest international video-mapping contest
The City of Bucharest invites artists to create a video-mapping installation for the façade of the Palace of Parliament, the third biggest building in the world, as part of iMapp Bucharest.
International artists are invited to create a 3-minute-long video-mapping based on the theme BLUE. YELLOW. RED – A Century of Modern Romania. It must be adapted to the façade of the Palace of Parliament, be in harmony with the architecture, and accompanied by music.
Each show would be a conceptual work of art, based on these colors, as elements of video mapping. References to the history of Romania (events and important figures relevant for our past) are welcomed, but we encourage artistic integration, instead of a documentary approach. The visual content can be conceptual or figurative, realistic or symbolic. It can fit a very abstract approach of the artist or it can be a part of a narrative puzzle.
The animations will be projected on 22 September 2018, in front of a jury and a live audience.
One of the biggest video-mapping events in the world, the 2015 edition of iMapp Bucharest involved 23.000 square meters of projection surface, over 104 projectors and more than 2.000.000 ANSI lumens in front of an audience of over 65.000 people.
The iMapp Bucharest 2016 Videomapping Competition is jointly organized by the Municipality of Bucharest, creart – Cultural Centre of the Municipality of Bucharest as the Producer, Maxin10sity Ltd. as the Art Curator and 360 Revolution Srl as Technical Provider.
Deadline: 2 July 2018
