Light Festival Ghent

Light Festival Ghent 2011

For the first time in Belgium, the City of Ghent organized a Light Festival and Mr.Beam was part of it. For this special event we chose the back yard of the Ghent's conservatory, giving us a beautiful 180° canvas to work with.
The inspiration for this show is mainly based on the huge contrast that the building has in every way. Not only from an architectural point of view - the stunning aged exterior compared with the modern style of the interior -, but also the difference between the overall atmosphere that the building has in day and night. At night time the building gives you a quite dark and spooky feeling, while in broad daylight you will be surrounded by beautiful music that's being played by students.
We created the content with these main elements as an inspiration point. Also the architecture itself was the foundation for both the audio composition and the animations which are inseparable from each other.
