Mapping Festival presents works by individuals and collectives that share a passion for real time image making and performance. For its 2010 edition, The Particle is part of a collective exhibition exploring immersive art. The installation is on show from 6th to 16th May 2010 at BAC.
Mapping Festival is dedicated to the advancement of the VJ medium, by initiating events where the medium of projecting images is combined with other trends in contemporary culture. The festival was started in 2005 by the developers of Modul8 and the association of the night club Le Zoo/Usine. Mapping festival is a laboratory for the VJing discipline, offering both novices and professionals a platform for experimentation as well as a forum for exchanging ideas and resources. This approach has given it a reputation within the world wide VJ community.
