Massively Distributed is a community-driven public art expression with engagement from the palm of one’s hand to the scale of the city. Sampled sound and visual textures from the Scottsdale area are organized into a creative palette and shared via a web-based app. Through this online media-sequencer, the public is invited to create dynamic sound and visual compositions and submit them for inclusion in the public presentation of the work at Canal Convergence. During the event, three sites located throughout Old Town Scottsdale culminate in a series of sound and video projections celebrating the community’s creations at the scale of the city.
The web-based app is now available for public use. Access it here.
Location: Massively Distributed will be projected on three different buildings in Old Town Scottsdale. Look for it in the following locations:
- West-facing wall of Southbridge buildings on the southwest side of the Scottsdale Waterfront. Best viewed from Scottsdale Waterfront Canal Path.
- East-facing wall of Western Spirit: Scottsdale’s Museum of the West, 3830 N. Marshall Way.
