We were honored to have asked back as one of the photography + commercial video sponsors of the electrifying annual event held in Alys Beach and known as Digital Graffiti.
As stated on the DG website, “Digital Graffiti at Alys Beach is the world’s first projection art festival, with artists using the latest technologies to project their original works onto the town’s iconic white walls. Sometimes referred to as “Photon Bombing,” “Guerilla Projection” or “Urban Projection,” underground artists around the globe have already been using the latest design, animation and projection technologies to cast dynamic images onto skyscrapers and other urban structures as a means of artistic expression. But Digital Graffiti at Alys Beach is the first outdoor festival specifically organized to celebrate and showcase these unique talents. “Our town literally becomes their blank canvas,” said Kelli Siler, Alys Beach’s Events Coordinator.”
Digital Graffiti 2014 was just as epic as was last year’s event. There were returning artists from year prior, as well as new digital artists from all over the world. Shantell Martin is my personal favorite. She had an interactive canvas in which she would digitally draw on or around the subjects. One of the new artists I was drawn to was Joseph Toney. His piece was projected on one of the beautiful houses that lines scenic highway 30a. Saturday night was a great conclusion to DG2014, with amazing music and live visuals set to music by the talented team at B-Boy Productions. Jeff with Facetime Photobooth was back again, and that is always a treat. DG is better and better with each year, and we’re look forward to what is to come for Digital Graffiti 2015. ~Ryan
