PROGRAMMING

IRIS [1]

20 20+01:00 September, 2011 @ 9:00 UTC+1

IRIS is an installation using a large scale projection of a human iris. The projection shows a model of a human eye magnified a thousand times, averaging 20 meters in diameter. The scale of the object allows the audience to discover the uniqueness of every single human iris. The references for the final digital painting were made by using scans of eyeballs using a combination of medical microscope photography and digital SLR

LASERMAPPING [2]

20 20+01:00 September, 2012 @ 9:00 UTC+1

The theme of this videomappingshow is the „Classics of Gaming” and all you can connect with dawn of video games some over 40 years old. You will recognize Pac-Man, Space Invaders and other classics in usual and very unconventional situations of course accompanied with tailor made music from LasermanCZ.

SKETCH_BATTLE [3]

20 20+01:00 September, 2013 @ 9:00 UTC+1

Sketch Battle gets its inspiration from hip hop’s street battles. Two sketchers have 10 minutes to respond to a random theme and the best sketch wins, allowing its author to go to the next stage. Two nights of fun and art with a DJ and an MC.

OCTOPUS GARDEN [4]

20 20+01:00 September, 2014 @ 20:30 UTC+1

One of the most audience-friendly installation loved for its use of found materials, hacking approach and DIY feeling. Very specific slower meditative time is created by analogue light glows, shadows and movements partly autonomous, partly triggered by the audiences.Shadows, analogue moves and a very relaxed atmosphere is often an antidote for the daily life.

ANGER AND HOPE [5]

20 20+01:00 September, 2015 @ 9:00 UTC+1

Anger & Hope refers to Pandora's box from which these two emotions escaped and continue to recur in our own times. The myth resonates as we watch an old world collapsing further with each day. The aim of the device is to give physical form to sound frequencies, rendered in three dimensions through luminous flux. Images and sounds merge into one medium, with shifting contours, which appears to be alive and tangible. The projection is innovatively screened through a large glass box filled with smoke to create a 3D feeling. Guillaume Marminis a real inventor. For his light installations he developed his own original beamer, he experiments with different ways and formats of light sculptures.

BEAM REACH [6]

20 20+01:00 September, 2016 @ 9:00 UTC+1

The location is built of 7 stylized “ships” – pylons lit by light beams with a special banner on the top. The banner is covered by a special filter that breaks the light from the beam in several fractions of the spectrum. The banner moves by the power of the wind creating a choreography of colours and rays of light. Theinstallationisaccompanied by an original music.

GROW [7]

20 20+01:00 September, 2017 @ 20:30 UTC+1

GROW is and an interactive installation highlighting the importance of the symbiosis of human kind with nature. With 20 playing chips of natural design up to 5 people at the same time can co-create the symphony of lights and sounds from the wilds. You can hear frogs, cikadas, wind, storm etc.

ALFA BEAST [8]

20 20+01:00 September, 2018 @ 20:30 UTC+1

It seems like some mythical beast sneaked into theEdifícioAvenida just during Prisma weekend. We all hope that no one will hurt!

MOLICEIRO RACE [10]

1 01+01:00 September, 2020 @ 13:30 - 15:30 UTC+1

 The idea of the installation is to go back to childhood when we used to play with car, trains, boats and other models - just pull and let it go.A player can download the gaming app by qr code or by link on the website of the event. When user opens the app he/she is asked to choose a boat, which can be personalised by colour and 2 letters on top of the boat. Then he/she can start the game - pull the boat and let it go on the facade of the building.

SHAPES OF AVEIRO [12]

20 20+01:00 September, 2020 @ 13:30 - 15:30 UTC+1

There is an “old fashioned” analogue technology of light projection through a glass slides. Very powerful projection of static images. Aveirense photographer and designer Rafaela Alves created tailor made designs where the audience will be able recognize local specials like Arte Nova, Salina, tiles or Moliceiros.

MAPP [11]

20 20+01:00 September, 2020 @ 13:30 - 15:30 UTC+1

MAPP is a mix of an interactive projection and a performance. Its title is an abbreviation of Mapping At Private Properties and visitors are asked to “step into the light” and become part of the artwork. The plan is to make every festival night as an ongoing performance.
