Over the weekend, lucky lottery winners attended the free interactive art and music event, The Creators Project, a partnership between Vice, Intel and participating artists. Saturday hosted mind-blowing live performances from Yeah Yeah Yeahs, Squarepusher, Zola Jesus, Shabazz Palaces, The Antlers, Teen Daze, HEALTH, New Pants + Feng Mengbo’s Bruce Lee VJ Project, The Hundred in the Hands, and a closing DJ set from James Murphy of LCD Soundsystem.
The Creators Project completely took over the Fort Mason center, with food from Off the Grid, interactive art, film and panels on bridging technology and art carrying through Sunday. Still, tons of crowdsourced media is available to peruse on the event’s website. To somehow remotely have the experience many had over the weekend, watch this short documentary about the event’s most bizarre installment — a large object “that demands to be worshipped” — Origin by UVA & Scanner.
