Obscura Digital Projection Mapping | Empire State Building
www.livedesignonline.com: If you are in New York City, tonight—April 19, 2017—this is the night to find a place with a great view of the Empire State Building. Much as they did in projecting images of animals threatened with extinction in August of 2015, Obscura Digital will once again create skyscraper-size images, in the neighborhood of 500’ tall x 186’ wide, draping over 42 floors of this iconic New York City landmark from 8:30pm to midnight. The images are created using 66 Christie Digital HD20k J Series 20,000 lumen projectors, with three backups (69 total), projecting from the rooftop of a nearby garage, at an extreme angle of51º angle (going beyond 40º is considered challenging).
