Enlighten - part 1

Posted by
Stephen (Canberra, Australia) on 23 July 2012 in Architecture and Portfolio.

I am at the Enlighten festival. In this shot, the National Library lights up as an electric canvas. The artists map their design to the building and then project it onto the façade.

You might recall the virtual bookshelf from last year.
