Design, fabrication and live programming of PASSAGE at Sidebyside 2022.
After 3 years in covid-forced hibernation, Sidebyside 2022 was a success bought about by the sheer passion and will of all those involved. Mapped was directly responsible for the design, engineering and building of a number of hybrid perfomance + experiencial spaces within the festival site.
PASSAGE : A massive monolithic pyramid clad in 40+ custom cut and painted panels all made in-house. Mapped was directly responsible for the design, engineering and building of this monumental structure which functioned as the mainstage for the whole event.
SANCTUARY : An immersive dance experience incorperating our own 4m LED screen with custom generative visuals in conjunction with 16 LED mounted poles which spanned into the crowd on the main dancefloor allowing for a fully immersive experience.
LOUNGE : In collabortation with Hari Hari - a SA-based painter and muralist which uses organic and hard edged shapes to weave togethe Sidebyside's brand colours with the predictable chaos that is his recognisable, signature style. Incorperating a four point Funktion One System, the LOUNGE functioned as a haven-like midpoint between two main stages, featuring a lineup of local Dj's and producers.
