You may have heard about my friends who built Toronto’s most famous art car, Heavy Meta. The project is one of many well conceived and executed plans to come out of The 4tress. The local Toronto shop is the home for this creative collective who hail from all walks of life .Â They come together with a multitude of skills creating some excellent experiential art like Heavy Meta, a fire Breathing Dragon built from an old school bus . They had a great first year traveling North America sharing this epic moving art and now that 2018 is here they have even bigger plans and are looking for help raising funds for a new project and some dragon upgrades .
See the team in these shots at The 4tress now hard at work building an awesome set for me to project some frosty effects onto.
Meanwhile I am here working on how to render ice and convincing lighting effects shining through it like this so it can be projected onto the the stage set creating an illusion of depth with refracted light.It should be a cool event (forgive the pun) when we have it all together on stage at MOD club this Friday !
Toronto Light Festival (featuring Heavy Meta)
The TorontoÂ light fest in the distillery district is on again now till March. The free outdoor event hosts a series of light sculpture installations in this historic location.Â This year featuring some great new additions like the fire breathing dragon Heavy Meta and team of hot fire masters and dragon tamers.Â It’s worth a walk through to see some art and there are a few good places to eat there too.Â I hope to see more projection mapping in light festivals of Toronto in the Future and hopefully participate in one locally or possibly in another city.
