    Performance Art

    Shadowpuppetry, digital interactive projections, beat poetry, and choreographed dance are common types of performance art. Unlike most forms of digital media, performances tend to be enacted in real time. Practice rehearsals are usually necessary.

    Projection Mapping

    Projection mapping takes the contours of architecture into consideration when projecting a multimedia show. Many digital artists collaborate to bring these public installations to life. Creating a public work on this scale usually takes a lot of planning, a sponsor, and permission from public officials. They are generally tested using 3D software, since the first time the entire show is seen full size will be on the opening night. 3D effects can sometimes be achieved by setting up multiple projectors to project at different angles, creating trippy illusions. These may have to be viewed from certain angles for the effect to work properly

    Art Bombing

    Art bombing is a form of guerilla art that involves anonymously leaving unusual art installations for people to find. It’s basically a benevolent form of trolling.

    Unlike graffiti, these installations are usually non-destructive to public property. They are generally large and put in places where people will see them, but some artists like to make tiny sculptures hidden in alleys that only a few people will ever notice. Yarnbombing is one of the most popular form of art bombing. Since these installations are public, the artist takes a risk that the installations will be removed, defaced, or stolen. Many art bombers choose to offer their installations as free for people to take if they choose. The appeal in art bombing is bringing something fun and unexpected to the mundane daily lives of people

    Urban Exploration

    This form of tagging documents that a person has reached an area that is off limits. It is generally considered illegal due to the dangerous conditions of some of these areas. Example sites include the tops of skyscrapers, sewers, derelict buildings in the city or countryside, caves, and monuments. Taking selfies is a common documention method.

    The exploration aspect is usually considered equally important to the artwork. Elaborate murals left in hard to reach abandoned places can take hundreds of hours to create and usually require multiple visits bringing in supplies. The people who are intrepid enough to explore and encounter these hidden treasures for themselves are rewarded with a once in a lifetime discovery that few will ever experience

    Optical Illusions

    Optical illusions are intended to cause a discrepancy between what the eye sees and what the brain perceives to be fact. The French term trompe l’oeil means “fool the eye.” Many optical illusions rely on forced perspective, where the illusion only works from a certain angle or distance. Mathematical formulas, color contrast, and physics can also be used to create intricate geometric designs and visual puzzles.

    Geocaching is basically treasure hunting with a GPS. People will leave small rewards like keychains or action figures hidden in an area accessible to the public that other players can find by tracking down the coordinates or following clues. Whoever finds the prize is expected to leave another prize in its place for someone else to find. Mobile apps and smartphones have made geocaching and other forms of gamification more viable to the general public.
