Borealis Outpost is a series of featured light installations created for the large plazas, parks, and water by local professional artists, in some instances partnering with creative technicians. There will also be an outpost at MadArt.
Borealis Aura is a group of artistic light installations that will be designed by local professional lighting designers.
Two passageways meandering between buildings in the neighborhood will host a string of light art. There will be an open call for art, sculpture, and interactive installations that use light as a media for these throughways.
Borealis Perimeter is a series of sites around the city with light and projection based installations that will open a few weeks prior to the festival. We are looking to these events to draw attention and build interest in the festival, to launch it. They include sites such as Fantagraphics in Georgetown and METHOD Gallery in Pioneer Square.
