Illuminated Waterfront 2018
Illumination Collective, ECHO Leahy Center for Lake Champlain, Burlington VT
The Illuminated Waterfront was the second collaboration of all of Illumination Collective’s artists. One of the main though processes was that through the bitter cold of Vermont winters, people gather in the warmth of community. In contrast to the freezing darkness, light becomes more special. We had proposed to use video projection on hanging scrims, projection mapping on floors & walls, ambient lighting, projected animations, and other lighting techniques and illusions to illuminate the Burlington Waterfront at night. Our aim was to create a beautiful, safe, and family friendly experience that dazzles the senses on New Year’s Eve while having interactive and participatory installations for the audience.
