Digital Graffiti at Aly’s Beach
Digital Graffiti is an annual festival that comes to the crisp, white buildings that make up the community of Alys Beach. Artists from around the world project their digital masterpieces for visitors to analyze, interact with and admire.
The festival allows visitors to complexly immerse in the world of the artist on a large scale. It is a unique opportunity to see projected artwork on completely white walls with different interactive elements that make the whole town glow.
This year the festival occurred June 4-6, with options of a daily or a three-day pass. Guests could walk through the streets of Alys beach to admire the bright projections on the white walls of the homes. Food trucks and cash bars were available throughout the venue.
The three-day festival concluded with a hip, colorful party at the poolside venue, Caliza pool. This event featured a cash bar, lite bites and live music, as well as an interactive photo booth. The photo booth allowed for guests to create a moving image with several pictures and post it on social media as a souvenir.
Yandell Walton from Melbourne, Australia was named Best of Show for her digital creation, “Human Effect.” This artwork was a series of plant forms projected onto a wall. Visitors could interact with the plants when they walked up close. The healthy, green plants would wilt away with human presence. Walton’s purpose was to show the effect humans have on the environment.
