Nuit Blanche: Neon Noir Event Summary

Winnipeg VJ’s are pleased to announce the full list of interactive elements that will be featured tomorrow Sept 29th at Forth for Neon Noir. We’ve been working hard developing a diverse repertoire of visually interactive 80’s style art installations for our audience to enjoy, which are highlighted below.

As a late addition also enjoy a premium laser show set up by Kris Miller of ‘Laser for Hire’!

Also enjoy free food prepared by the HaCHere Pop Up Collective – Six chefs will be serving a variety of snacks in a culinary competition / pop up food court that is sure to fill your tummy and keep you partying all night long.

Finally our Neon Noir DJ’s have also been hard at work selecting the best 80’s tracks to keep that dance floor pumping from 8pm to 2am. Don’t miss these knowledgeable dance floor veterans as they serve up smooth beats, pulsing synths and the best 80’s samples to keep you dancing all night long!

We are very excited to have you join us for this unique free event as part of Nuit Blanche 2018, come early and stay late!

Virtual Reality

Winnipeg VJ’s has long wanted to bring their full dome content to the Winnipeg art scene but due to technical limitations this wasn’t possible…. Until now! Yes, that’s right, we’ve build a virtual planetarium in VR to showcase our full dome content which you may have seen a few years back as part of the NEST Dome at motion notion 2016. For more information check out this brief demo on our Vimeo pages.

Arcade Station

The president has been kidnapped by Ninja’s… ARE YOU A BAD ENOUGH DUDE TO RESCUE THE PRESIDENT!? .. We’ll find out! We are bringing out a special treat, a fully functional retro Synthwave arcade experience for all you righteous classic arcade lovers.

CRT Wall

Watch VHS tapes featuring outrun themed animations, 80’s music videos, and retro tv & movie clips

Transmitted through VCRs composed onto a stack of multiple CRT televisions, the artist uses analog video mixers and effects boxes to bend, distort, loop and twist the video signals, creating a chromatic collage of retro visual effects.

A written description does not do this installation any justice, just stare into the boob tubes and prepare for a serious dose of the 80s with an acid twist.
