The Creators Project 2011 Launch Wrap-Up
Yesterday, we released a huge announcement outlining all the exciting endeavors we’re planning for 2011, including the launch of The Studio, more details about the artists and creative collaborations we’ll be bringing to Coachella, a new mini-documentary series that we kicked off with Interpol, and the locations for this year’s longer-form event series.
Later in the evening we held an event at the 3LD Art & Technology Center in Lower Manhattan, where we utilized their transformative Eyeliner 3D projection technology to liven up the traditional press conference format by projecting visuals in front of and around the speakers.
VICE’s Shane Smith, Intel’s Marketing Director John Galvin, and Paul Banks and Daniel Kessler from Interpol discussed the implications of the project’s first year and their hopes for the coming year, and before hitting the dance floor, we got a chance to meet our newest Creator from South Korea, Taeyoon Choi, who’s currently a fellow at EYEBEAM Art and Technology Center in NYC.
There’s much more news to come, but here’s a quick list of our upcoming collaborations:
-United Visual Artists (UVA) (UVA) redesign Coachella’s main stage
-Director Jonathan Glazer partners with UK-band Spiritualized on an experimental light and sound installation: “Meet Me in the Chorus”
-Black Dice designs Animal Collective’s visual language
