Art Comes Alive!

A friend has sent me links to a graffiti/light show in Melbourne.
He was rather proud of this particular work, given that his son was a vital part of the creative team.
It was at Melbourne's largest cultural festival, White Night Melbourne, held on Sat.21 February 2015. Attended by over half a million people and running 7pm – 7am, the festival took over Melbourne's CBD for a one-night-only artistic extravaganza.
This particular piece was called Sofles – Graffiti Mapped. Many months in the planning, Sofles – Graffiti Mapped linked graffiti, street art and technology through a combination of 3D video mapping, traditional street art and graffiti techniques, and motion design.
Over five stories high, it was artist Sofles' biggest work to date. Add to that Grant Osborne's incredibly-detailed motion design and a musical score by NZ music producer Opiuo, and it was one truly innovative work of art.
If you're impressed, make sure you attend next year's White Night Melbourne festival!
Here's the actual creation of the artwork...
And now, ladies and gentlemen...the entire light show!
