SUNSET @ NOON
Inspired by Vaporwave, a culture characterized by a nostalgic fascination of retro aesthetics, video games, technology and advertising, Sunset@Noon submerges festivalgoers into a state of alternate dimension. The installation takes over the entirety of a 6,000 square foot warehouse space at MANA, morphing into a multisensory experience of art, music, and fashion, each expressed in vintage, internet based aesthetics. At the pinnacle of the room will be an interactive fashion installation that mirrors the appearance of a real life shopping mall, complete with department stores, kiosks, and abstractions by local fashion brands ISHINE365, Style Mafia, and Algae. The multisensory mall installation fuses audio and visual dimension into reality through
a virtual shopping experience, echoed by experimental performances courtesy of local musicians Virgo, Uchi, Otto von Schirach, Rat Bastard and more. Attendees will stroll through time and space, as the vibration of psychedelic music pulsates, and one dimensional barriers slowly fade away. New forms of visual art will be showcased such as a transformation chamber “Make Up Salon,” where guests can peer through acrylic doors and catch a glimpse of behind the scenes hair and makeup artists transforming the performers. III Point’s artists will enter the chamber throughout the course of the festival, providing more of a high fashion look for their performance.
Aileen Quintana explores the realms of performance art, such as an experimental marbelizing act titled Interdimensional baths and more. Additional elements of the Sunset@Noon experience include a VHS store by Veronica Gessa, Dale Zine lounge and art from Strangeways, GG artwork, Jay Shogo, Natasha Tomchin, and an artist collective from Post Vision along with a hangglider painted by the esteemed artist, Brian Butler.
