As you may have heard, Beatabet is stepping up a gear to bring you the most spectacular Metahub to date… www.themetahub.com
We’re privileged to have been co-commissioned by Nuit Blanche White Night and supported by the EU Interreg 4 (Channel) programme as well as Arts Council England. Working closely with Brighton & Hove City Council and collaborating with the Metahub Association, PiP, Quadratura, Phoenix Brighton, C3 and Brightonart, our combined forces will create a large-scale interactive installation that will illuminate the cultural life of our cities.
The Metahub will feature as a centrepiece to both the Amiens Nuit Blanche (France) on the 15th October and Brighton White Night on 29th October, connecting festival venues by streaming live video footage into the Metahub and projecting it onto an outdoor sculpture. Video mapping will transform every face of the sculpture’s cubes into a multitude of projection screens, emanating the sights and sounds created by many of the wonderful artists involved in Nuit Blanche White Night.
As well as live streams, we are encouraging the public to share their experience of the festival and help create content for the sculpture. Anyone can upload their own videos, photos or sound-bites to the Metahub, straight from your smartphone on the night, or at a workstation inside Jubilee Library.
