ish is proud to be a part of The Nation's largest illuminating walk-through festival of lights, art and projection-mapping displays that takes over 30+ city blocks throughout downtown Cincinnati and Northern Kentucky on October 13-16, 2022. It’s your time to shine! We are excited to announce the return of the Blink Parade. This year, we are so honored to partner with ish, a Cincinnati-based arts and cultural organization to help plan the parade. Taking place on October 13, 2022, this year’s theme is “Together: a constellation of shared cultures and unique identities; we illuminate joy through creative expression.” Applications to participate are now open!
Creative architecture firm OGE Design Group (Haifa, Israel) is coming to Cincinnati in partnership with ish and BLINK to create an installation that is inspiring, daring, visually impressive, inclusive and conveys the important message that we can shape our future only together!
The project is consists of 2 elements: (1) a larger than life inflatable artwork of hands forming a heart and (2) a video mapping projected onto the surface of the sculpture.
We are inviting everyone to join in the creation by providing images of flowers, butterflies and birds in form of drawings, pictures, stitching, pottery or any other art form or form of expression – which we will use to create the base and material for a giant community projection mapping that will then be projected onto the hands sculpture; thus, turning the artwork into a joint collaboration community artwork of hundreds of authors, where everyone’s creativity is reflected.
