Content Description

VECTORIAL ELEVATION was an interactive art project which allowed thousands of people from 89 countries to control 18 robotic searchlights with 126,000 watts of power and link Cyberspace with Mexico¹s most emblematic urban landscape. Mexico City¹s historic centre was transformed by immense light sculptures created by participants on the Internet using a virtual reality program. A personalized web page was made for every participant with comments, stats and virtual and real images of their design from three perspectives. The project was also localized for the capital city of the Basque Country and for the Fête des Lumières in Lyon.
