festival of lights berlin

The “Festival of Lights” presented Tim Schmelzers work 2014 and 2015 at the Berlin Cathedral (Berliner DOM). The subjects where presented by static slide projections on the 116 m high facade of the cathedral. In 2014 Tim Schmelzer involved the structure of the building in his work, and accentuated the symmetry of the building with a special arrangement of the letters D O M. For the 10th anniversary of the festival in 2015, the subject was leaned on the festival theme “new dimensions” and took the name “novel space”. The technical implementation was realized with 6 large scale projectors by Pani Austria.
