Sakura Illumination & sunset at Sunset Beach

  • Apr 11, 2014 · 7:30 PM
  • This location is shown only to members

THIS IS NOW AN UN-HOSTED EVENT. UNFORTUNATELY RIGHT NOW THERE IS A TIMING CONFLICT  FOR ME WITH THIS NEW DATE......HAVE A WONDERFUL TIME AND ENJOY THE SPECTACLE.........SEE YOU THERE!

Stuart Ward of HFOUR (a multi-sensory experimental design collective www.hfour.ca) will use LED and patterned video lights to illuminate a canopy of cherry blossoms with his sensory projection artwork. The single night quality reflects the tempo of the blossoms, and their varying bloom times. The unique experience will create an intangible memory of a time and place never to be duplicated. The Illumination takes place between 7:30 and 9:00....it is in all likelihood a repetitive display so you don't need to be there the whole time if you can't. Sunset will be at 7:59.

1) WHAT SHOULD I BRING: A Camera, any type will be fine, a camera phone, a point & shoot or a DSLR. Dress comfortably and make sure you will be warm...

A tripod is will greatly enhance the quality of your photos.

2) HOW DO I GET THERE: For transit information: www.translink.ca. If you are driving, parking in the West End is scarce so give yourself plenty of time to find a spot.

AT ALL TIMES, PLEASE BE MINDFUL OF YOURSELF AND YOUR FELLOW PHOTO WALKERS, YOUR PROPERTY AND YOUR SURROUNDINGS! 

AFTER THE MEET-UP DON'T FORGET TO UPLOAD FIVE  (5 only) OF YOUR BEST IMAGES

    It seems I got the time wrong... I went to what I thought the bones were .... But at 6.30
    I thought this was[masked], so ha dinner date at 8pm
    We walked to the cherry blossoms but had to leave at 7.50... So missed the main part!
    Was it originally 6.30 meet?

      Hi Linda, after the event was postponed from last week, I made this an UNHOSTED event, because I was uncertain if I could attend....last weeks start time was 6:30...I made a suggestion that if anyone wanted to meet and attend together to be at the "dinosaur bones" at 7....it was never meant to be an official start time...the people at Hfour,made an on the site decision to change the start time to 8pm, which was unfortunate and out of my control...I didn't even know about it until I arrived about 7:20

      April 11, 2014

  • kelly

    For those of you that want to participate as a group, I am suggesting that you meet up by the dinosaur bones sculpture on sunset beach.....and since everyone is in the location anyways why not photograph the sunset...it takes place a 7:59.

    Hi Kelly, do you know until when they have this illumination? Thanks

    March 31, 2014

      From everything I have read it is only the one night this year...

      March 31, 2014

  • kelly

    If you are not familiar with Granville Island, please read the meet-up description carefully...take notice of where the Sakura Illumination is......it is NOT where we are meeting.....we are walking back to it.....this will be helpful if you are arriving late as well...

    March 31, 2014

  • kelly

    Hi everyone....as I write this rain is in the forecast for Friday....please don't let that keep you away.....If the forecast happens to change, even better!
