Arts Council is partnering with OCUBO a Portuguese artist studio specializes in interactive, participatory installations for LUNA Fete 2015. The studio produced major multimedia projection on facades in Portugal, with projects such as “Arch of Light” and “Circus of Light” attracting about 500,000 spectators each. The studio also executed projects in Australia, Singapore, Japan, Israel, Germany, Ireland, and other countries.
“SHARING LIGHT WITH THE PEOPLE, EMPOWERING THEM TO CREATE WITH LIGHT, GIVING THEM THE OPPORTUNITY TO APPROPRIATE THEMSELVES AND THEIR URBAN SPACE – THESE ARE THE MOTTOS OF OCUBO’S CREATIONS.”
Ocubo will support LUNA Fête’s objective to create an education initiative that engages youth in the development of new artwork working with local students to produce the installation which will premiere on the 1847 Polymnia Street facade of Ashe’ Power House Theatre during LUNA Fête 2015.
