Medialize.it comes out from the Beautiful Country in order to enlighten and give a new face to Girona(Cataluña, Spain) on the occasion of the second edition of the International Mapping Festival of Girona, that took place from the 24th of July to the 2nd of August 2015.
The Festival supports the new digital art that has the aim to recreate the city’s image; it is an initiative of the City Council of Girona in collaboration with BLOOM ( digital 3D production).
It’s not only an amazing opportunity to guarantee a new importance to the local tourism and culture but also a possibility to know and learn more about this completely new way to create art, thanks to the many stages that the Festival offered. The event wants the culture to be free, open and accessible to everyone who wants to learn.
There have been presented beyond 100 projects, 89 of which selected for the contest. All the projects were divided into four category: Professional, Amateur, Micro-Mapping and Educational.
Medialize.ite took part in the Festival, competing in the Professional category, reinventing the aspect of the Jutjias, Court of Girona with a storytelling of images and sounds. A prequel of Migrations, the unrealized project that will be presented in Rome during the nights of the 11th, 12th , 13th of September 2015 at Teatro Marcello.
Migrations is a project of architectural mapping that “explores the theme of the migration of people, thinking, nature. The contradictions and the contrasts of the contemporary speed of light become visible into the chaos where nothing is anymore perceivable. Everything blurs into a huge migration” (Pasquale Direse).
Author of the concept and the project is Pasquale Direse in collaboration with Aggeliki Tsekeni (Greece), Angelo Ruta, Damiano Spina.
