Limelight just proved they are the future of 3D projection mapping. The winners of iMapp 2016’s Jury’s Choice Award, as well as the People’s Choice Award, Limelight’s project is a breathtaking visual journey of unity and the interconnectedness of all things. Experiencing production of this magnitude in a festival setting seems like the absolute dream… Could you imagine Shpongle, Tipper, or Amon Tobin shredding with this visual accompaniment?
There’s only so much I could describe about the piece, but here are the words from Limelight themselves, and just let the video do the talking:
“Even though we often lose touch with the bigger picture, we are all part of a cosmic network. It is only the human mind’s false perception that inner and outer are separated, causing confusion and misunderstanding in the world sometimes.”
“The piece is aiming to reopen the dialogue between the internal and external through a cinematic journey from the state of separation to the state of eternal openness.
We are aiming to draw from contemporary visionary art and architecture, sacred geometry, even physics and chemistry to turn the Palace of Parliament into a vibrant, endlessly beautiful scenery of our symbolic dialogue. Integrating the facade’s architectural characteristics into our artwork is also a key element in the concept adding an extra value to this conversation between artist and audience, the city and its citizens.”
