During the residency, the engaged makers will analyze the economic and creative potential of LED in public lighting, in order to reduce power consumption and propose new ways to enhance the artistic and architectural impact of the historical center of Formello by using lights. More specifically, the research will focus on two issues: to produce an analysis of the current lighting conditions and related energy consumption in the historical center of Formello, compared with public lighting systems built with low energy LED technology and to experience the creation of a luminaria made of addressable LED, on which is be possible to project images, texts and videos, also controlled by the public.
The workshops and showcases are dedicated to learning and sharing, drawing upon the theme of live video culture. We explore theories of content production and the processing of images, we study and experiment with new technologies, develop cultural debates about free and open source and learn about the latest news in software and hardware development.

AV performances are the heart of the meeting and the most interesting opportunity of comparison for the artists themselves.The programme offers projects that use very different techniques, but at the same time follow a common thread that evolves throughout the day. From video theater to video dance, from live cinema performances to queer culture, from generative music and visuals to live coding, until the final parties, animated by international DJs and VJs.
The VJ performances represent one of the historical moments of LPM. Since the first edition in 2004 thousands of Vjs from around the world have flocked to our screens with colors, stories, and visual rhythms. Also this year the best international Vjs are hosted in Rome to show all their talent and their creativity.
Four days of Live Mapping performances. Every night, the scheduled artists will have 30 minutes to perform live and an international jury will announce the 3 bests during the last night.
By abandoning the stage, digital art can come close to the public producing intimate and unexpected modalities of fruition. Video, sound, touch and movement become the new vocabulary of a language dedicated to creation of interactive games and perceptual experiences of meaning and image. Interactivity is the key to reading these works, works that investigate well beyond the boundaries of visual communication, in order to enable the viewer to interact with them, pushing the senses and confused perceptions of reality and fantasy.
