Festival of Lights projection on Berliner DOM

Does it get any bigger? A rather unusually big publication even for a seasoned photographer: Approx 9,000m sq projection of images onto the Berliner Dom with photos from Oliver Brenneisen for the Festival of Lights. The festival organisers approached Oliver Brenneisen to participate in the illumination of Berlin´s largest church building. The 12 nights festival is one of the largest illumination events in the world and attracts around 2 million visitors. Massive worldwide media coverage carries the visual from Berlin around the world.

A total of 42.000 Watts of light source made the photos shine on the building front. High resolution scans from medium format slides were used as source files which got split up into six pieces: One for each of the six massive projectors that then together formed one seamless projection visual.
