Rome Mapping festival #15
from hours 20.30 until 00.00
Installation Globoscope – Collettivo Coin
RO_map welcomes the Globoscope installation for the first time in the imposing location of the Circus Maximus. Globoscope is a spectacular installation combining the features of digital minimalism and kinetic monumentalism. This work is composed of a multitude of luminous spheres controlled by a wireless system, through which technology the digital artist Maxime Houot proposes the digitalization of urban spaces. Distributed randomly, each point, each pixel that makes up the whole is interconnected with the others through sounds and movement of the light which passes through them. Here, mathematics, sound and light are used to reproduce and transfigure, to amplify space and offer spectators a surreal experience.
from hours 21.00 until 00.00
Mapping stereoscopico (3D) – Apparati Effimeri
From Friday 11th September the festival moves to Piazza Navona, to the façade of the Church of Our Lady of the Sacred Heart. This jewel of the late Renaissance period will serve as the location for the great evening show of mapping: in collaboration with live performers meeting, the façade of the Chiesa di Nostra Signora del Sacro Cuore will come to life thanks to the projections in 3-D of the artistic collective group “Apparati Effimeri”. For the first time in Rome RO_map proposes a stereoscopic mapping. Thanks to the use of specific 3-D glasses distributed in the square, spectators will be able to admire the transformation of the architecture of the church and thus enjoy a unique and sensational experience.
