NIIGATA MINATOPIKA2015

“The 4th 1 minute projection mapping”, the contest in which creators from all over the world compete their expression, was held in Niigata city for the first time in this year.
The theme of this year was defined as “CROSS/INTERSECTION” such as cross-culture, cross-race, cross-nation, cross-art, cross-age, cross-technology, and cross-media. We looked forward to seeing what kind of CROSS would be proposed and visualized from Niigata, Japan.
The contest was held for 5 days from 19th to 23rd November 2017 in Niigata city, and about 47,000 people visited.
