This show celebrated the big moment for Ithra’s Eid in Dhahran, Saudi-Arabia in April.
The 5:55 minute contemporary show was developed specifically for the occasion and the iconic building.
Our work is based on the idea of imagining a building reflecting on its own characteristics and constructional details in an abstract way. A total of 30 high-performance projectors created a 270-degree image on the façade.
Over 1,000,000 AnsiLumen of light output illuminated the 90-metre-high building, designed by the transdisciplinary studio Snohetta. In 3 days, almost 70,000 spectators saw our show.
