Animal art was illuminated by mapped visuals during Rotterdam’s Museum Night.
Rotterdam Museum Night (Rotterdamse Museumnacht) sees over 50 museums participate in bringing art to the streets of the Dutch city for one night only. In an outdoor installation, ‘Welcome Into the Future,’ large-scale sculptures of a rhinoceros and an owl stood above a crowd with pulsating colors and patterns projected onto them, controlled by the audience.
Created in a collaboration between Sober Industries and Studio Rewind, the sculptures were multifaceted, seemingly built out of shards of wood. Spectators were given a cubed-spaced controller that, when tilted, changed the color of the light being projected on the animals and had buttons which could skip through the mapped visuals, as well as . Ranging from galactic light displays, to images such as owls and leaves, the digital projection brought the wild animals to life and created a stunning light show that dazzled attendees.
