We are specifically looking for art works in the following categories:

    • Projection Mapping (on buildings, walls or murals).
    • Light based art installations or sculptures.
    • Interactive installations involving light.
    • Video content for publicly placed video monitors or projection screens.
    • Light-based or related movement/dance performers.
