Water + Art + Light
Nov. 9-18, 2018
Featured Local Artist: Walter Productions
Walter Productions is a Phoenix-based creative collective that specializes in building experiential art. The team behind our special blend of magic is a group of dreamers, artists, technologists, fabricators, programmers, producers, and all-around make-it-happen people who have a well-established reputation for making amazing things happen.
FLOATUS by Walter Productions
Floatus invites attendees to be inspired by what is possible through creativity, teamwork, technology, and fabrication. The installation consists of 12 polished aluminum lotus sculptures that float on the surface of the water. Each Floatus is equipped with LED lights and flame FX systems capable of shooting a controlled flame up to 30 feet in the air.
The Floatus blossoms look beautiful during the daytime as they reflect the sunlight, but they come fully alive at night with LEDs and fire shows choreographed to music. The Walter Project will offer 28 fire shows during the 10-day Canal Convergence event and two special shows during the Nov. 8 Launch Party. When the flames are not firing, attendees will be invited to interact with a console that controls the LEDs within each Floatus blossom.
