Astoria Visual Arts welcomes Portland’s Mobile Projection Unit for IGNITE!, an evening of mega light installations and sound spatialization throughout Astoria on Saturday, January 9, beginning at 7:00pm.

The Mobile Projection Unit (MPU) is a roving media studio that presents new, experimental, site specific outdoor projected video installations. Founded in 2018, MPU is the brainchild of Fernanda D’Agostino and Sarah Turner, and has produced many massive light installations including for the Portland Institute of Contemporary Art for TBA2020, the Virtual Venice Biennale Film Festival, and the Portland International Film Festival, including site specific installations on the Burnside Bridge, the Portland Art Museum and many others.

Joining the MPU cast for IGNITE! is Crystal Quartez, a composer, creative coder, professor and creative producer based in Portland, Oregon.
