This year, a 3D animated light installation, graphic display, and music breathed life into the heritage façade along St. Georges Terrace. Drums and audience activation zones lined the intervals to entice the audience into their own expression of sound and correlating projections.

Produced by Lux Events, the projections utilized eight outputs of coolux and took advantage of coolux’s recent major software release. For this project coolux is talking to a lighting console which is running lights on an adjacent building that matches the projection on the main buildings.

An electronic drum kit was linked in to coolux so the public could generate visuals on the buildings and there was a second interactive element where a coolux AirScan tracked body movements to generate sparkles on the building.

“We incorporated the historic buildings located along Perth’s St Georges Terrace into our mesmerising animated design, created by our talented designer Pawel Piotr Przybyl,” added David Trapp, managing director of Lux Events. “As part of our leap into experiential events, we created two interactive projection activations where the public could create their own projection and light show on the buildings through drumming and hand movement.”
