World Preview – Artist and director in attendance

What place does art have in people’s daily lives? That is the question which Mexican-Canadian artist Rafael Lozano-Hemmer asks. In developing his acoustic environments, his light shows, and his interactive projections on five continents, which won him two BAFTA Awards, a Bauhaus Award, and a Governor General Award, he uses technology to gather people and transform them into actors for social change. Filmed over 10 years in 25 cities around the globe, this film paints a picture of his approach and contagious enthusiasm when it comes to transforming the urban landscape into a work of art for all to see, from Vancouver to Rotterdam to New York.
