Projection Mapping has become fairly common in Japan and it is one of the modern ways of communication. As it has become so common nowadays, it is the matter of “what” you do with it and AntiVJ has come up with something very unique.
On the invitation of Proyecta Oaxaca, several artists from the Antivj visual label have devised four visual and sonic works to be installed at the heart of the Ethnobotanical Garden in Oaxaca. This audio-visual installation was named “The Ark”.
The Ark is a site specific installation, commissioned by and presented during Proyecta Oaxaca, festival de diseño y artes digitales. The Ark is built around the cacti that line the Aljibe, at the heart of the Ethnobotanical Garden of Oaxaca. Adopting a poetic approach, The Ark gives voice to the garden’s plants, participants in the work, the beating heart of the space and an unpredictable choir.
