BLOOM is an interactive projection installation with community effort to beautify businesses in the city of Charlotte. A live projection-mapped video illuminates the McColl Center all seventeen nights of the festival. Beginning at dusk, you become the visual conductor of digital blooming flowers by pressing buttons on a screen to add endless effects to the projection.
On Fridays, Saturdays, and Sundays, Everyone is welcome to join us for a community planting of spring gladiolus bulbs in hand-built flower beds. The movement of your hands planting will trigger an immediate blooming of a giant digital flower on the McColl Center. Come make an impact and have fun with this multi-experiential work that will continue beyond Charlotte SHOUT!
Look out for the flower bed you planted blooming in its new home around Charlotte.
