TECHNOLOGY & STRUCTURAL INTEGRITY
Voxel Bridge is a 34,000 sqft immersive installation by New York based Colombian artist Jessica Angel. The piece explores how public space can be constructed and utilized in both digital and physical realities. Using adhesive vinyl and Augmented Reality technology, Angel will transform the Cambie Street Bridge in Vancouver and draw visual parallels between blockchain technology and the structural integrity of the underpass in front of the Southeast False Creek Neighborhood Energy Utility (NEU). This installation becomes a point of contact and dialogue around different forms of knowledge. The ideas that inspired this artwork will be further discussed at #ArtProject2020, an art and technology expo to be held from November 11 to 15, 2020. The expo will be the first of many activations based on this installation. Voxel Bridge will be a gathering hub for innovators in the fields of sustainability, Augmented Reality, and digital art in public space. Vancouver Biennale invites all artists, creators, and experience designers whose ethos are aligned with the concepts of experimentation, community, integration, and decentralization to activate the space.
