LUMA is a projection festival held annually in Upstate New York that celebrates the intersection of art and technology. Founded in 2015, the three-person team expected a crowd of 3,000: and 30,000 came. Since then the festival has grown, with the mission dedicated to the art of storytelling through projection mapping.
