TAMPA, FLORIDA, March 2022: One of the largest and most collaborative multi-disciplinary arts efforts in Florida, Crab Devil, experienced immense success last weekend at Gasparilla Music Festival 2022. Crab Devil debuted its hypnotic installation “Photonic Vibrations” by St. Petersburg artist Michael Horn. With back-to-back weekend events, Crab Devil will unveil a second installation titled “The Bait Ball” at the Gasparilla Festival of the Arts on March 5 and 6.
“Crab Devil was thrilled to partner with Gasparilla Music Festival to debut artist Michael Horn’s “Photonic Vibrations” that engaged music festival attendees in an illuminated and motion responsive environment. As part of our first partnership with Gasparilla Festival of the Arts, we are excited to premiere Crab Devil’s latest installation, “The Bait Ball,” designed by Crab Devil CEO Devon Brady,” comments Sarah Howard, She Crab.
“The Bait Ball’ submerges viewers in a simulated underwater environment activated with light and kinetic elements inspired by flocking and schooling behaviors found in the natural world. Crab Devil hopes these festival activations inspire and enhance the visitor experience as we continue to cultivate and build community through fun and creative installations that stimulate imagination and promote artistic practice”, she continued.
“The Bait Ball” serves as an introduction to the scale, complexity, and fully immersive nature of the experience that Crab Devil has in store for visitors at its upcoming Florida-themed immersive art experience, The Peninsularium.
To interact with “The Bait Ball,” participants can attend the Gasparilla Festival of the Arts on March 5 and March 6. Gasparilla Festival of the Arts is free to the public.
