This past weekend The Vice Crew in conjunction with the fat pockets of Intel, hosted what seemed to be the perfect fusion of experimental art, film and music called The Creator Project. We all know The Vice Land-ers know how to throw a party. Full on open bar, ice cream vendors and an endless amount of free sliders, hosted at the massive Milk Studios in New York City.
Beyond free booze and burgers it was also quite refreshing to see the majority of the visual artists had a keen use of light demonstrated in their work. A far cry from the typical mundane New York City art world template.
There was no shortage of bright sparkly things. Some of my favorite work was done by 'United Visual Artists'. Super sleek dancing light and projection shows with the strategic amount of social commentary. Very compelling use of light in the form of communication.

While Muti Randolph and his multi light layering "experimental environments" were complete acid trips in the making. In the past their light medley's have been in various fashion shows, nightclubs, among other alternative lighting events.
The counter culture skate director turned Hollywood film icon, Spike Jonze got involved. He presented his rather interesting 30 minute love story of two robots living in Los Angeles. Being recently converted into a cyborg this 30 minute tale truly touched a nerve. There was also a questionnaire box where the viewer could ask Mr. Jonze about the short film. He drops some science with his replies (which can now be viewed online), post production.
Interpol discussed the trials and tribulations of the World Cup as they prepared for a historic set at the Milk loading doc on 14th street. In addition to Interpol, there was Die Antwoord, Sleigh Bells, Mark Ronson and too many others to list. All scattered though out the 8 floors of Milk Studios.
This pioneering exhibit redefined technology in art. Head over to TheCreatorsProject.com to relive all the fun now streaming in 2D.

Finished the night by frying out with the heads from Graffiti Research Labs and being stoked on my complimentary book.
