    In February 2010, the city of Vancouver hosted the 21st Winter Olympics, giving rise to the biggest "street party" in Canadian history. For two weeks, people flocked to the downtown core, rubbing shoulders near the giant blazing cauldron, huddling around public TV screens, and feeding off the positive energy that seemed to flow through the city's veins. Beginning with the torch relay and ending with Canada's Gold Medal win in Men's Hockey, EUPHORIA is a short film memento capturing the groundswell of national pride and jubilation in the streets when an entire nation came together and cheered as one.

      • "Vectorial Elevation" at Winter Olympic Games (2010) by Rafael Lozano-Hemmer


        from bitforms gallery / Added

        "Vectorial Elevation," 1999-2000 Relational Architecture 4 outdoor public installation with robotic searchlights, custom software, computer, Internet access dimensions variable Installation view at 2010 Winter Olympic Games, Vancouver, Canada. “Vectorial Elevation” was originally developed for the Millennium Celebrations in Mexico City’s Zócalo Square, where over 800,000 people from 89 countries participated in its two-week exhibition. The installation was subsequently presented for the Fête des Lumières in Lyon in 2003 (600,000 participants) and for the EU expansion celebrations in Dublin in 2004 (500,000 participants). Between February 4 - 28, "Vectorial Elevation" will be on view in Vancouver, Canada, during the 2010 Winter Olympics. The websites www.vectorialvancouver.net and www.alzado.net contain a virtual model of Vancouver where you are able to design “light sculptures” with 20 robotic searchlights located along English Bay. Once you are happy with your design you submit it together with your name, location and dedication or comments. Every night from dusk to dawn new designs are quietly rendered sequentially as they are added to a queue. The project automatically creates a personal webpage for each participant, documenting his or her contribution with views from 4 project webcams. With a 15 Km visibility radius, the installation intends to blend the virtual space of the Internet with one of the most emblematic public spaces in Vancouver. The piece in Vancouver is the largest and brightest to date, with 20 10kW searchlights covering English Bay with a 100,000 m2 canopy of light. Despite the monumental size of the installation and its wide visibility, the project is not intended as a cathartic pre-programmed spectacle like a fireworks display or a son-et-lumière show. On the contrary, the piece is designed to attract constant, personal participation that creates a sense of connection, complicity and entitlement. o Zócalo Square Mexico City 1999-2000 o Artium Square Vitoria, Basque Country 2002 o Place Bellecour Lyon, Fête des Lumières 2003 o O'Connell Street Dublin, EU Expansion 2004 o 2010 Winter Olympic Games Vancouver, Canada 2010 Video courtesy of the artist and bitforms gallery nyc.
