Follow the Lights to Kuwait!
FESTIVAL OF LIGHTS on tour
Kuwait shines! For two weeks, the FESTIVAL OF LIGHTS team from Berlin staged the beautiful and impressive Sheikh Abdullah Al Salem Cultural Centre (short: ASCCKW) in Kuwait City with a colourful projection show that enchanted visitors and passers-by.
The elaborate 3D projections astounded the audience: dinosaurs, robots, oriental scripts and traditional Arabic patterns were displayed on the futuristic facades of the cultural centre Sheikh Abdullah Al Salem. But that was only the beginning!
A history of one celled organisms and spaceships
The three-dimensional projection of the Berlin team staged the theme worlds, which are located inside the museums, on the façade of the cultural centre. For example, an armada of sailing boats and space ships, antique balloons and modern cars set off on a journey, telling interesting picture stories of technological progress. Shortly afterwards, the emergence and development of ecosystems were visualized in a fascinating way with molecules and protozoa, sparkling dewdrops and throbbing hearts. Those who wanted to know more could explore all the topics in greater depth in the museums.
