For the first time the FESTIVAL OF LIGHTS International presented its light art projections in Kuwait, at the state-of-the-art Sheikh Abdullah Al Salem Cultural Centre! As part of its one-year anniversary, the ASCC celebrated its birthday with an extensive festival.

From 21st February to 2nd March 2019, interactive activities with artists, exciting lectures, workshops and live performances took place in the cultural centre.

The FESTIVAL OF LIGHTS team was part of this huge birthday spectacle and supported the celebrations for 9 evenings with an unforgettable 3D video mapping show on the facade of the cultural centre. The projections were realized by the award-winning MP-Studio from Sofia (Bulgaria) and let the viewers experience stories from the inside of the cultural center in a very special way.

The 3D Projection Mapping invited the visitors on a journey through the history of the origin of the earth, based on the worlds to be found in the museums of the ASCC. From the origin of ecosystems and living beings, to primeval times, to man and the development of his culture, the mapping impressively told of the transience and change of all living things. It also addressed the technological progress in science that goes hand in hand with the progress of human civilization, resulting in artificial intelligence.

The entire 3D video mapping show of the MP Studio at the Cultural Center can be seen here:
