iMapp Bucharest – Winners League international contest, the biggest video mapping event in the world and the most prominent New Media Art project in Romania, organized by the Bucharest City Hall, through CREART, brings on September 23rd, 2023 the fascinating show of visual arts and technology back on the impressive projection surface of the façade of the Parliament Palace.
Within the 8th edition, the visitors can vibe together in the heart of the city, in Constitution Square, watching the 3D visuals of some of the most remarkable artistic teams in the world, winners of the partner festivals of iMapp Bucharest: Video Mapping Festival Lille (FRANCE), Genius Loci Weimar Festival (GERMANY), CosmoLights Projections Mapping (GREECE), Zsolnay Light Festival (HUNGARY), 1Minute Projection Mapping Competition (JAPAN). CONTRASTS, the contest’s theme, will be explored by the artists in a creative and innovating way, and the jury made of important international representatives in the audiovisual field will decide the winner of the price for the edition of 2023.
The symbol created and artistically projected on the façade of 23.000 sqm of the biggest administrative building in Europe represents the very existence, which shows itself through a succession of contrasts, inviting the visitors to observe a series of oppositions inspired by a variety of contemporary contexts. These captivating contrasts reflect the diversity and complexity of the human experiences, which naturally exist in everyday life. Contradictions such as present-past, good-bad, light-darkness relate in fact to the strong need for coming back to a balance state equally empirically and emotionally.
Thus, on Saturday, September 23rd, the city will turn into a huge screen, while the 3D projections will illustrate the ferment of feelings, emotions, and perceptions, taking the public on a visual journey with a powerful impact. This unique experience will be completed, throughout the 12 hours artistic event, by music (DJ set and concerts), lounge areas and street food, activities and installations. The highlight of the program consists of the iMapp Bucharest – Winners League international contest projection.
Bucharest citizens and tourists alike are invited in Constitution Square for a new energetic edition of the biggest arts and technology show in the world!
