Projection Mapping Installation
Victoria Park BIA & AZMA present GRAVITATION
October 10th - November 6th, 2020
Gravitation is a large-scale projection mapped installation taking place each night along 1st Street SW between 12 Ave and 13 Ave SW.
Gravitation combines particle-based animations along with inspirational texts, commenting on life under a pandemic, to create a truly unique and mesmerizing experience for the Calgary public.
The installation is inspired by gravitation, a physical natural phenomena that is shared by all matter in the universe. Gravitation references the movement by which any particle of matter is able to attract and repel others with varying force over time. Particles exist both individually and collectively and are involved in an ongoing, ever-changing push/pull relationship to negotiate space and shape. The fluctuating movements within Gravitation are inspired by the ways society has adapted to deal with the challenges present during COVID-19 and the difficulties of being apart while trying to connect with loved ones and the world around us.
