This December the Serbian Science Festival Nauke invited OMAi to host a Tagtool installation at the Belgrade Fair. Markus and Josef of the OMAi set up a panorama projection with two Tagtool stations.
The festival had over 30.000 visitors and it seemed like most of them found their way to the Tagtool station. Thanks to the fantastic support of our volunteer helpers we managed to keep everything under control for four extremely busy days in a row, nine hours a day.Collective Creativity
People of all ages joined us at the installation. It was an ever-changing, colourful explosion of animated doodles, paintings and handwritten texts. Our visitors especially enjoyed taking photos next to their creations!
Last weekend OMAi collaborated with ART X Lagos, West Africa’s premier international art fair in Nigeria. ART X and Absolut presented a live show with visual artists and musicians called the Electric Africa: The Digital Orchestra. All the ingredients blended into an extraordinary audiovisual experience!Teaming up
The visual part was provided by the up-and-coming artists Osaze Amadasun and Williams Chechet from Lagos. AWCA, a creative agency from Lagos, hooked them up with Josef Dorninger of the OMAi crew to present their Tagtool art at the show. The sound was presented by popular young Nigerian singers and musicians Poe, Tomi Thomas and Wavy the Creator.Getting ready
Within no time the artists were fluid with Tagtool and adapted their individual styles to this new medium. They developed the concept for the live show together with the musicians during rehearsals. They were ready for action!The big show
The show was a big success. Osaze and Williams rocked on Tagtool, in the flow with the beats of the orchestra and the vocals. The audience celebrated this creative experiment!
