Montreal Meet & Greet
August 8 @ 6:00 pm - 8:30 pm EDT
“Presentation by Amahl Hazelton from Moment Factory”
Amahl Hazelton, Head of Strategy & Development–Urban Spaces
Amahl Hazelton joined Moment Factory in 2009, and now heads Strategy and Development for Moment Factory’s ‘Urban Spaces’ division. His experience in digital placemaking ranges from content-rich immersive experiences on Vancouver’s iconic Canada Place Convention Centre to the facades of the Federal Parliament building and the National Arts Centre in Ottawa. Building on celebrated media architecture installations from LAX and Changi airports, to flagship civic infrastructure such as the Interactive Illumination of Montreal’s monumental Jacques Cartier Bridge, to the award-winning Kontinuum digital take-over of Ottawa’s soon-to-open LRT subway tunnel in 2017, Moment Factory takes the audience on an exciting, disruptive tour into the future of digital signage.
Prior to joining Moment Factory, Amahl was lead Project Manager of Montreal’s celebrated Quartier des Spectacles entertainment district and its Signature Lighting Plan, designed as a flexible, refreshable digital urban canvas–a Plug-and-PlayGround for festivals and curated digital light-art commissions.
Presentation Summary: Digital Placemaking For Tomorrow’s Smart Cities
Join Amahl Hazelton for a journey into the immersive universe of Moment Factory’s recent digital placemaking and live entertainment projects.
Urban destinations of all stripes – from retail and leisure centres, to sports and performance venues, to urban and natural public spaces – are investing in new layers of digital infrastructure and participatory content that is designed to attract, engage and retain visitors of all ages.
As Media Architecture becomes omni-present and increasingly omni-channel, the experiences that digital display systems enable are increasingly understood by decision-makers and developers as important strategic levers in our quest to add value and meaning to the Urban Spaces that surround us.
The event includes networking with hors d’oeuvres and bar service!
