In Luminary Glyphs, artist László Nagy explored the use of AI to create captivating animations based on the visual qualities of symbols, text, and ASCII characters. Nagy's animations transformed the architecture of Prague's Municipal Library into a dynamic canvas using Christie Griffyn® 4K50-RGB and M 4K25 RGB pure laser projection.
Artist Rafael Lozano-Hemmer's Thermal Drift interactive installation visualized the radiation of visitors' body temperature by using a thermal camera to detect heat, and a Christie M 4K25 RGB pure laser projector was used to paint the resulting unique portrait of dispersed particles.
Signal Playground – by creative studio 3dsense – was the festival's first installation designed especially for children, with vibrant and colorful images powered by Christie 4K10-HS 1DLP® projectors that encouraged visitors to interact with the space.
