Intel's The Creators Project Brings Tech, Art, and Music to San Francisco
The Creators Project, a revolutionary partnership between Intel and Vice magazine, invaded San Francisco's waterfront Fort Mason Center this weekend with an extravaganza of tech-driven art, film, music, artist talks, panel discussions, and creative workshops. Dedicated to supporting artists in realizing their creative visions through technology, the event was an astounding showcase of mind-tripping, interactive installations that entertained geeks and art lovers alike. And since no good fest is complete without dance-demanding, fist-pumping beats, much-anticipated LCD Soundsystem alumni James Murphy, Pat Mahoney, and Nancy Whang, the Yeah Yeah Yeahs, and Squarepusher also headlined a 10-act musical lineup. The project, which has united more than 150 artists from around the world in its three-year history, drew more than 25,000 attendees over two days.
Didn't make it to the event? Watch out for it this year when it returns to Paris, São Paulo, Beijing, Seoul, and New York. But first, experience it all vicariously with a few awe-inspiring photos and glimpse some of the impressive artwork that was shown.
