Hong Kong Tourism board annual summer show PULSE. The show’s family focused story is a unique take on how much fun and excitement can be had in the city of Hong Kong in the Summer. With iconic characters inspired by traditional local food favourites such as the Pineapple Bun, the Egg Tart and Dim Sum characters joining a playful Dragon and a cheeky Rooster on a whirlwind tour of the territory. During the show, the characters come to life not only as high-end CGI animation projected on the HKCC façade, but as giant inflatables and LED installations across the HKCC piazza, providing amazing photo opportunities and interactions for the visitors. A 50 metre long interactive LED sculpture of the dragon is synchronized with the projection on the Clock Tower challenging the audience to “wake up the dragon”. Members of the public can interact with sensors that power up the game and trigger 3D mapping animations as they awake the dragon from its slumber.
On Saturday the 21st of February, Sofles – Graffiti Mapped premiered at Melbourne’s largest cultural festival, White Night Melbourne. Attended by over 500,000 people and running from 7pm – 7am, the festival takes over Melbourne’s CBD for a one night only artistic extravaganza.
Many months in the making, Sofles – Graffiti Mapped is an innovative step forward for the world of graffiti and technology. Sofles – Graffiti Mapped explores the intrinsic connection between graffiti, street art and technology through a combination of 3D video mapping, traditional street art and graffiti techniques and motion design.
Over 5 stories high, Sofles’ inner city mural is his biggest work to date. Add to that Grant Osborne’s incredibly detailed motion design and a musical score by New Zealand music producer Opiuo, and you have a truly innovative work of art. Visible for one night only, but destined to leave an impression on the city’s skyline Sofles- Graffiti Mapped was one of the most exciting events of the entire White Night Melbourne festival.
