Urbanscreen set sails in Sydney Opera House

Some video mapping art seeks to change the perception of architecture itself, as if a building were made of hundreds of moving television screens. 
This video shows how design collective UrbanScreen, multi-award winning German design collective and whose projections I have already shown here several times, created optical illusions in the “sails” of the Sydney Opera House during the Vivid LIVE in June 2012. 
Motion graphics are projected onto the white surfaces, which dimple with movement like actual sails. The work explores both the iconic sculptural form of the Opera House but also its place as a home for music, dance and drama, resulting in a work that is both sophisticated and spectacular.
