Always on the look out for new and exciting art forms, I spotted this article.  In Alys Beach, Florida USA today as I write this, the town shall be lit up by digital technology.  Artist shall project their work onto the white buildings of the town, using them as their canvas   – with dramatic effect.  Apparently, this is the third year of the event and 36 artists have been chosen from 300 applicants.  What a great way of promoting art and bringing it out of the museum!  More towns should do this!

an example of what happens

Inspired by this article I looked for other projector exhibitions and I found this video.  It is different from the other because although it uses projection, the buildings themselves are digitally changed and some of the effects are very dramatic.  Instead of using the building as a canvas, the artists have worked with the real structure of the buildings.  Love it:)
