Digital artists show their stuff in San Francisco
At the Creators Project, which had a two-day run this weekend, a number of interactive artists got the chance to showcase their work before thousands of people.
If you're a local fan of digital art, there's a good chance you spent at least part of your weekend at the Creators Project, a celebration of the art form that drew thousands to see a diverse collection of interactive installations here in San Francisco.
From 40-foot-tall latticework cubes filled with LEDs (see video below) to huge triptychs that converted people's body images into flights of fancy, the project showcased some of the best--and worst--digital art around. It also gave visitors access to a collection of films on the topic, and the chance to listen to a number of musicians, including the hit group, the Yeah Yeah Yeahs.
The Creators Project, a collaboration between Intel and Vice, "supports visionary artists across multiple disciplines who are using technology in innovative ways to push the boundaries of creative expression," it says. The festival is now in its third year, having traveled to cities like New York, Paris, and Sao Paolo.
