In its second year, the LUMA Projection Arts Festival uses high-powered projectors to 'animate' the facades of buildings and create dynamic shows. This year also features a juried competition. Organizers Joshua Ludzki and Nick Rubenstein talk about the technique of making buildings move with light. "LUMA, the largest projection fine arts and entertainment festival in the United States, returns on September 2nd. Last year, 25,000 people gathered in Downtown Binghamton, NY, to celebrate a bold confluence of technology and visual arts.
