By Mona Kim, Todd Palmer, Olga Subirós and Simon Taylor from Program Collective for the Water for Life exhibition at the Expo Zaragoza 2008, a fair that focused on water and sustainable development..
19th edition of Art Futura, the Barcelona-based festival of Digital Culture and Creativity, closed on Sunday with the Prize Giving Ceremony. Awards were handed to the creators of best pieces in 3D and digital animation and of the best Spanish videogames.
The challenge for the artists was to fill in two entire floors of the Water Tower, the Expo's signature edifice. Two floors might not seem much until you add to that a huge empty space of 40 m high that the designers had to occupy with a work which could somehow balance the architecture and get people to walk up the ramps that wrap around the tower's interior.
