For those who attended Digital Graffiti 2017 this past May, you’ll likely remember the artwork projected on smoke and the water of Lake Marilyn. We love this video look back at that installation: “tempest,” by Robert Seidel of Berlin, Germany.

In Seidel’s words, “The work combines abstract video projections and immersive soundscapes with choreographed fog and water fountains. In doing so, the artwork literally repaints the lake, woods and architecture of Alys Beach, Florida.”

As part of Digital Graffiti’s annual juried festival—2018 call for entries is now open—we also host the Visiting Artist Residency, a multi-day program wherein select, award-winning artists immerse themselves in the town of Alys Beach. Artists collaborate with Digital Graffiti curator Brett Phares to create individual pieces that are entered into the juried festival. In addition to Seidel, artists in residence from the 2017 festival included Jinku Kim, Providence, RI; and Krystal Schultheiss, Melbourne, Australia.

The 11th Annal Digital Graffiti takes place May 18-20, 2018. Visit digitalgraffiti.com for more information.
