Sun Effects Japan’s Boardwalk Illumination
Wander the otherworldly forests tonight
While the number of art installations around Fuji Rock is markedly thinner this year compared to most, the effort and execution of what we did get was up to Fuji Rock’s usual high set of standards. Sun Effects Japan and their illumination work on the boardwalk between the White and Green stages was a standout among the crowd this year, with projection mapped Gon climbing trees, and broad swaths of river and forest alike drenched and dripping in an almost palpable layer of projected color.
The team was also responsible for Fuji Rock’s 2019 boardwalk illumination, though it went largely unappreciated due to long closures during the heavy typhoon that hit the festival. This year, however, the team is back and and the generators are running for the whole weekend, though nighttime is when the lights really shine.
Just because it is dark doesn’t mean there isn’t beauty and enchantment hiding in these forests. Make sure to give thanks to Sun Effects Japan for taking the time and putting in the effort to illuminate this magic for us as you take a walk on the boardwalk this evening for the last night of another spellbinding Fuji Rock.
