Aurora 2013: Light of Convergence

Aurora 2013 celebrated the theme “Light of Convergence” in October with over 90 international artists presenting art works across a span of 19 city blocks. Light, sound, performance and video art, as well live music, food trucks, and pop-up bars transformed the Dallas Art District into an immersive art space. The iconic architecture of the Wyly Theater served as a projection screen for Aurora 2013′s featured art installation “Blueprints and Perspectives” by the art collective 3_Search, a forest of LED bulbs was created for Audiopixel’s installation “Arbor Borealis”, and Shane Pennington’s “Points of Life” presented an awe-inspiring stage-curtain made from a programmable grid of LED lights, combined with a live music performance by Jazz vocalist Kally Price, accordionist Dan Cantrell and double bassist Daniel Fabricant. These and many more interactive works explored the dialectic and convergence between the individual and communal consciousness. With over 40,000 attendees at the free and public event, Aurora 2013 was widely successful in illuminating its audience with conversation and exchange of ideas.
