São Paulo, Brazil
Synopsis: A site-specific projection art performance, mixing digital graffiti and live painting techniques with frame-by-frame animations. The artists create animated artworks live on architectural canvasses, projected from a custom built projection tricycle moving through the streets. Poetic visual narratives travel open spaces, illuminating the walls on a large scale. With the video manipulated in real time, the artists bring itinerant art to all audiences to create unique moments between the people and their surroundings. This project is in collaboration with Austrian arts company OMAi, creators of the Tagtool app.
