Tagtool Crew Installations at Sandance in Dubai

Nights by Absolut is an initiative by Absolut Vodka challenging digital artists to create installations as nightlife experiences around the world. It kicks off in the United Arab Emirates at this year's Sandance on Friday, October 10th, it has Austria's Tagtool Crew creating animated projections live at Nasimi Beach in Dubai, during a night of music, partying and excitement. This Tagtool exhibition will be the first of many, created with the goal to merge creative expression with nightlife. Similar installations will be created all over the Emirates in the following months.
 
The installation to be shown by the Tagtool Crew at Sandance will be driven by the musical beats and will take place parallel to music, with the active interaction of the audience. Between onstage performances of some highly anticipated musical acts - Axwell, De La Soul and Sebastian Ingrosso - the crowd will be invited to try their hand at tablet stations. Tagtool will bring the familiar street art and graffiti into the party, visualizing the spirit of the people. 
 
The Tagtool Crew is visiting the Middle East for the first time in their "career" - they have previously displayed their installations in 35 countries. According to their manifesto, reality is just a layer - and during their performances the crew covers it with a new one, an ephemeral one consisting of light and color: projected image. The crew describes itself as "the projectors of the 21st century", transmuting bits and bytes into inspired light. 
 
Let their words speak for themselves:
 
"We paint on weathered textures, on the living and breathing canvas of our environments. Images unfold in the moment, arising spontaneously from the depths of other spheres, augmenting nightly reality. Walls come to life, buildings become transparent with dreams and visions."
 
Sandance is a beach near the Atlantis The Palm in Dubai, hosting a series of high profile parties each year. There will be two bashes organized in 2014 - one of them on October 10th, and another one in November. The party coming on this week will have an impressive lineup of musical acts, offering partygoers hours of music and distraction, and an unparalleled festival atmosphere. The lineup consists of big names, like Empire of the Sun, Rudimental, De La Soul, Axwell and other musical acts, completed with the mesmerizing digital art exhibition by the Austrian Tagtool Crew. There are just a few days left - until then, you can play top online casino games at http://www.redflushcasino.eu/ to kill time.
