FIMG 2015

The International Mapping Festival of Girona, held from 24 July to 2 August in Girona, will present—for the very first time in Spain—an anaglyph 3D mapping show (two-dimensional images that become 3D when seen with special glasses) on a large-sized façade.

This is the festival’s inaugural show, entitled Diplopia and created by the Barcelona-based Onionlab studio. The inauguration will take place on Friday 31 July at 10 PM on the façade of the Santa Caterina Hospital in Girona. All other projections will begin at 10:30 PM. See schedule of contest here.

Diplopia is a stereoscopic piece that revolves around the concept of binocular vision, that is to say, how our eyes merge two separate images to perceive a single object. Two different points of view that arise as a consequence of binocular disparity.

In keeping with the main theme of the FIMG 2015—contradictions—, Diplopia focuses on opposing concepts, such as light and darkness, flexible versus rigid, near and far, noise and silence, wet and dry… The volumetric contrasts and illusion of depth create images intended to confuse, unsettle and fascinate the public.

A full version will be added here after the inauguration.
