So a few months ago I attempted to pull together a projection mapping event at a rock climbing gym local to me. Unfortunately it did not happen due to a pipe bursting and ruining the projections (they were insured luckily), but coming back to it and now we are doing it again!
This time around it is a much bigger event. We are trucking in over 50,000 lumens of projection systems (a normal projector is around 2000 just for reference) and lighting up a large part of Brooklyn Boulders. Check out the space:
The VJ team is working on some amazing content as well. They have created custom models and are churning out the content for some really unique stuff!
Next door to Brooklyn Boulders is Aeronaut Brewery, which is a great new event space and brewery/bar. They have hosted all sorts of cool gatherings there, from bands to projection events (Bring Your Own Beamer) all the way to a retro gaming night! In creating Visualize Somerville, we included them and they are now going to be throwing an art show next door. We are getting something like 32 artists to come in and put up everything from photography, installations, performances, paintings, and other creative artistry. We just selected the artists and I am very impressed by both the diversity of the artwork and the impressiveness of it.
This multi venue event will be on Friday the 27th of February and go from 8pm-11pm at Brooklyn Boulders, and 8-midnight at Aeronaut. Links and flyer below.
