YATES
STREET
PARKADE

Artists Scott Amos and David Parfit of Monkey C Interactive, and Toni Hall and Arya Hawker of EMP Productions have created an immersive, fully responsive audio visual environment on top of downtown Victoria’s Yates Street Parkade. Using projection mapping, industrial materials, and large scale LED installations, these artists have created an outdoor venue as bright, creative, and brilliant as the minds we get to fill it with.
