BLOOP Interactive Arts Festival, Ibiza 2013 – Announce Theme As CONTROL

BLOOP Interactive Arts Festival, Ibiza 2013 – Announce Theme As CONTROL
BLOOP Festival, the avant-garde creative project that marries art with Ibiza’s rich musical heritage, will be washing up on the shores of the white isle from 14th July – 18th August 2013.  Artists from around the globe will be using Ibiza’s stunning natural landscape as their canvas, to texture and colour the island with expositions, art installations, music and many more special events. 
Now in its 3rd year, BLOOP Festival is the first of its kind, being entirely dedicated to proactive art, creating an environment where artists, artworks and spectators are all participants in the piece. Whilst small and independent, the festival happens in a variety of different ways, all across the island. It is completely FREE and open to everyone and incorporates BLOOP marked interactive installations, parties, video mappings, open air photography expositions and much more.
Art is an important form of communication, and BlOOP’s aim is to give instruments to people, enabling them to think in different ways about social themes and to further appreciate everything that the island of Ibiza has to offer outside of its world renowned clubs and nightlife. Last year saw Martha Cooper and 40 other artists arrive on the island to produce 15 wall paintings on the sides of various buildings both in-use and derelict, the biggest of which was over 6 storeys high on the side of the Ibiza Rocks Hotel. The exhibition also witnessed painted goats, large scale video mapping to thousands of clubbers at We Love…, graffiti workshops as part of BLOOP Kids as well as various artistic creations sprinkled throughout Ibiza’s remotest corners.
 

 

 

  This year the festival takes the title CONTROL as its focus. It will explore the notion of control in all its various facets and how it affects us in our day to day lives, both as individuals and in society as a whole. Social networks, smartphones; useful and almost indespensable, the exhibition will invite us to ask; is this really the case?
