Since many years, the FESTIVAL OF LIGHTS presents breathtaking video mappings on the facades of the historic buildings in the German capital. The productions, which actively integrate the architecture of the buildings, fascinate visitors and guests from all over the world and add zest to the FESTIVAL OF LIGHTS. More and more designers and artists give this game of reality and illusion a try.
After the great achievements of the first Berlin FESTIVAL OF LIGHT Awards 2015 the championship enters the next round: 2016 international artists competed for the second time with their creative and innovative video mappings and state-of-the-art techniques.
TV Tower Berlin Projections
For the first time the TV Tower Berlin, highest building of Germany and emblem of Berlin, spectacularly illuminated. A jury nominated the 10 best video mappings about the topic Art & Nature, which were presented every night between 7 pm an 12 am from October 7th to 16th 2016 in a 20 minutes show at the TV Tower Berlin. Furthermore, all visitors of the festival had the opportunity to vote for their favourite mapping and pick this year’s award winner.
