Djs, Martinis, and Video Art: ShinyArt makes its debut splash

Wednesday night marked the frenetic openings of District 30 and Dive Bar – there were mermaids (yes, look at the pics); there were free drinks (who could resist?); there was incredible food, thumping music and, oh yeah, a whole lot of Video Art via ShinyArt.

Naturally, I have long envisioned the impact that ShinyArt artwork could have in public spaces – the unique ways it would interact with uncontrolled audiences, sounds, lighting, and colliding aesthetics. But seeing a wall of screens in the flesh at District 30, or the strategic tvs peppering the walls of Dive pulsating with visually intricate and often complex work quite honestly took my breath away.

ShinyArt just staged its first major video art intervention. The serendipity of the environments and their audiences brought new meaning to the work, while also transforming conventional relationships between viewers and contemporary art.

Can’t wait to see more.
