Claudia Bustos and Vlad Amiot, AF Calgary's July 2011 winners, kicked off their "Illuminated Landscapes" project last Friday as part of the Choose Yer Own festival.
It was a HUGE success, with approximately 150 people attending throughout the night to create LED fireflies and help illuminate the shoreline of the beautiful Elbow Island Park. There was a soldering station set up to create some of the more complicated LED installations, and for many people who participated, it was their first time soldering anything ever (and for many, definitely the first time soldering something under a bridge)!
Here's a taste of what happened that night:
If you missed out, don't worry! Claudia and Vlad will be debuting the second installation of their project entitled "Play!" tonight where you can come out and not only help illuminate some more of Calgary's beautiful landscapes, but also feel free to play around with some of their cool equipment.
Tonight's event will take place from 10 p.m. to midnight (or until supplies run out) at Prince's Island Park in the "darkest spot near the playground" and don't forget to bring your inner child along with you!
Everyone's invited, and if you'd like to RSVP, check out their Facebook Event Page.
Hope to see you there!
