New Acropolis Museum video projections at opening ceremony

Last Saturday the New Acropolis Museum was finally inaugurated in Athens. I have written about the building in 2Modern Talk blog back in 2007 and will write again more when I get a chance to visit it (I have only seen it from the outside so far). I did not see the ceremony but I found an incredible video of the projections that were done on the walls of surrounding buildings and the walls of the museum itself during the celebrations. Called "Reflections", they are large-scale site-specific video projections showing mainly sculptures that are exhibited inside the museum or small clips showing how a temple was built in Ancient Greece for example. The projections will be performed until the evening of the 23rd June. The projections were conceived and directed by Athina Rachel Tsangari. Animations were done by: antidot design studio, HAOS Film, Nomint Motion Design, and Oval Image. Music by Stavros Gasparatos.

    I've so enjoyed reading and watching your blog. My wife and I were there on the 1st night and I've come back to your site multiple times to relive the experience. thanks -m

  3. That was a wonderful video. I wish I could have been there to see it. When I visited the Acropolis many years ago, there was virtually nothing surrounding the hill. It was a long time ago.
