"Diversión" back for a third year.
A unique 'mapped' digital projection it presents onto the exterior of the well loved Spanish City Dome in Whitley Bay it returns on 5th and 6th November from 5pm-8.30pm. "Diversión" is free to view!
"Diversión" was created by Newcastle-based company NOVAK Collective, who following this commission have since gone to deliver high profile video mapping commissions for the likes of Nintendo in 2011.
Diversión is a striking abstract and evocative reflection of the bygone days at Spanish City's Dome. The looped 9-minute animation combines graphical elements, photography and muted 'aged' imagery to convey a fairground aesthetic that intimately relates to the building's surface via video mapping techniques. This work fills the exterior of the building with vibrant colours bringing this restored landmark to life in a totally unique way.
Alongside the filmic elements NOVAK have created an sumptuous soundtrack complete with echoed fairground layers, orchestral elements and a subtle homage to Dire Straits 'Tunnel of Love' which itself celebrates Spanish City.
This year Novak used Millumin a revolutionary software designed by Philippe Chaurand to directly map the video content onto the building remotely using the touch osc ipad patch.
