Vancouver first Lighting Festival was a huge success! Over 20,000 people within the first hour of opening passed through the streets of ILLUMINATE Yaletown. Over 1400 photo’s were entered in the flickr photo contest. Thank you to all the business and exhibitors who volunteered their spaces and time to build the art culture in Vancouver.
The Eos Lightmedia team had 4 primary exhibits. A crowd favourite was the Digital Graffiti project on the fabulous Opus Hotel. A 42” touchscreen LCD TV allowed young and old alike to finger-paint their designs on the 9 story building.
At MINI Yaletown we lit up 10 of their hot new cars and hooked it up to a keyboard for the public to compose their own lighting masterpiece.
We’re already in the works of planning the 2nd Annual ILLUMINATE Yaletown Event in 2010 so if you missed it this year, you’ll get another chance. This event is sure to become a Vancouver tradition.
