Started in 2011, it was Malaysia’s first culture and heritage-inspired digital festival. The inaugural festival happened out a 3-day period that took place at the UNESCO award-winning, Suffolk House, George Town, Penang in July 2011. It showcased Malaysia’s most innovative talents from animation, video, design, computer programmers and music. It was a part of the organizers’ attempt to kick-start a renewed interest in heritage buildings. Artists were commissioned by the festival to reinterprate the history, stories and environments of Suffolk House into digital-based mediums. The works were then expressed through interactive art installations and building video projection mapping. A milestone for Malaysian digital art was the 1st heritage building projection mapping.
