Photos from Vibrantes: Offsite Project Launch, Dec 3

The latest participatory offsite project at the CAG, inspired by Federico Herrero’s CAG commission Vibrantes, witnessed a wonderful turnout at its project launch last Saturday, December 3rd.

The new project provides participants with the opportunity to interact with emerging colour shapes that appear through their smartphones, creating layers of abstract forms over their surroundings.  The shapes are accessible throughout the downtown Vancouver area and can be captured as far as Granville Island and some participants have even found them in Kitsilano.  For more information on how to interact with this participatory project go to for easy-to-follow instructions.

Again, participants are encouraged to share their digital ‘paintings’ by taking screenshots and uploading these images to Twitter under the project hashtag: #CAGOFFSITE. See a few examples below and on our Flickr site:
