Giants of the Hoods

Kulmakunnan jätit

'Giants of the Hoods' is a dance and vj event in which participants create cut-out type virtual characters and make them follow their own body movements by dancing in front of a camera and computer system.

The virtual characters, or 'giants' are projected in big size on a nearby wall, and the event is accompanied with dj music. In each place the 'giants' are representative figures of that particular neighborhood or group, based on stories and created by the people themselves.

The 'Giants' project premiered in 2010 as part of the Media Facades Festival, and as guerilla art influenced street events in Helsinki and Liverpool. The current development of the project involves taking it to more varied audiences - to thematic events, children, and as a tool for social work with teenagers. The 'Giants' events range in size from major urban festivals to small gatherings under a bridge.
