Visual Art Festival In Prague

Designers and architects have shown more than 20 projects to the visitors: from video mapping to magic mollusks in the Vltava River.

This year “Signal Light Festival” held in Prague from October 16 to 19, presented 21 art projects in three categories: (1) video-mapping (3-D projection on the physical object) (2) light installations and (3) interactive installations. The exhibitions were shown on the streets. Walls of medieval buildings were brought to life for the guests through video-mapping, a giant octopus Kraken (from the folk stories of the sailors) was released into the Vltava River, 256 helium balloons equipped with LEDs were released, and many other events happened at the festival.

Ten installations were selected for the Czech light exhibition, which will travel trough the Czech Republic, and in February 2015 will open at the exhibition “European Cultural Capital” in Plzen.

Video designer and festival organizer Martin Posta talked about an idea to make a street celebration of visual art from 2010, when The Macula Company made the video mapping project for the 600th anniversary of the Prague clock tower.

The first “Signal Light Festival” was attended by 250,000 people in 2013. This year the organizers decided to make the show more complex and from 450 projects submitted for the exposition, they selected only 21 (in comparison to 35 projects last year).

Posta said that the second festival was even more successful. Organizers have started working on next year's program. Competition for the “Signal Light Festival 2015" will open in the next few days. More details on the projects are on the festivals’ website.
