ART Basel Miami – Skywalker

7 Jun

The Art|41|Basel|16-20|6|10 is just a couple of days away. Enough reason for a short flashback. Enough reason for a unique game which is entitled to be named quoting:

Project: Sky Walkers // Client: Toyota Scion // Project Overview: In 2006, FriendsWithYou opened Art Basel Miami with a large-scale inflatable procession that is comparable in scale to the Macy’s Day Parade. Commissioned by Toyota Scion, “Skywalkers” featured 18 giant blimps (designed by FriendsWithYou & our artist friends), over 300 volunteers, a high school marching band, and thousands of attendees all working together to celebrate the Earth as the newest member of the universal community. The parade illuminated the skies of Miami’s South Beach and made international headlines around the world including New York Times online, The Art Newspaper, and The Miami Herald. “Skywalkers” represents the magnitude and magic that only FriendsWithYou events can bring to life.

Quote taken from here. “Here” is also the place where you can get in touch with much more exciting examples of how one can express himself (or herself, of course) by adapting famously known art designs. The one above reminds us of Bridget Riley? Or may be of Paul Smith? And the other designs of Malcom Forbes light? Who knows, who knows…
