The participants are asked to create 4 unpublished graphic works for metal gobos, specifically for projections contextualised within the new architectural lighting of the incredible Scalinata del Passetto, on the Ancona promenade. At the same time, they are tasked to develop a storytelling to support the graphics. All the details and specifications are available for download here
