30A South Walton Digital Graffiti Best of Show 2011 580x480 JUNE: Digital Graffiti

Digital Graffiti at Alys Beach

June 6-7, 2014

Digital Graffiti is the world’s first projection art festival. It’s also quite possibly the coolest thing you’ve ever seen.

Basically, you start with the iconic white walls of an entire town, Alys Beach. Okay, so it’s an entire town-in-progress, but it’s an entire town nonetheless. You then invite digital and video artists from around the globe to submit extraordinary, surreal, algorithmic, kaleidoscopic, and moving works of art.

Then, you turn out all the lights and wait for darkness.

Lights on.

The result is a stunning larger-than-life explosion of colors and compelling visuals, projected 2 and 3 stories tall onto the white homes and businesses of an entire beach resort community.

Our town literally becomes the world’s largest blank canvas,” said Kelli Siler, Alys Beach’s Events Coordinator.

Each year’s festival attracts digital artists, filmmakers, musicians, interactive designers, photographers, VJs, producers, celebrities, agency executives and fans of art, technology and architecture. Thousands of dollars in cash prizes are awarded to artists, with digital submissions being received from as far away as Israel, Austria, Canada, Germany, London, India, France, Italy and China.

The jaw-dropping evening culminates in a truly collision of sight and sound at Caliza (which is also host to the Noche de los Muertos Halloween costume party every October).

Digital Graffiti at Alys Beach is one of 30A‘s most spectacular events. Visit the official Digital Graffiti website for more information about this year’s festival, and be sure to download the free 30A iPhone or 30A Android app before you go next year!
