In 2020, in partnership with Vancouver Biennale, Jessica Angel is developing a new project called: ENERGY FLOWS / SOUTH CAMBIE STREET BRIDGE.
Energy Flows is a large-scale immersive mural installation by New York based Colombian artist Jessica Angel. The piece will explore Vancouver’s position as a leader in sustainability and technology and reimagine how we build cities and construct public space. Using adhesive vinyl, paint, and Augmented Reality technology, Angel will transform the architecture underneath the Cambie Street Bridge and draw visual parallels between the functions of the Southeast False Creek Neighbourhood Utility (NEU) and Blockchain technology. The underpass will transform into a three-dimensional immersive experience that bridges the digital and physical space, and becomes a point of contact and dialogue between different forms of knowledge. Throughout its two-year span, it will be activated through programming that further builds on this dialogue and will become a gathering hub for innovators in the fields of sustainability, Augmented Reality, and digital art in public space.
