Featuring the work of over 20 artists, 'Immersive Surfaces' was a multi-part video projection installation displayed during the 2011 Dumbo Arts Festival in NYC. The 18 piece, three phase project explored ideas of 'crowd art' using city surfaces as canvas and incorporated all formats of video. But the highlight of the show was a video mapping installation titled 'As Above, So Below' that covered the Manhattan Bridge Anchorage in Brooklyn.

Video mapping uses software to accurately align projected images with an object's form and create a dynamic display. In the large scale 'As Above, So Below' the artists emphasized the Manhattan Bridge Anchorage structure's surfaces and then transformed the walls with optical illusions. During the festival, tweeted images of the installation were incorporated into the projections as a crowd sourced collaboration.
