VILNIUS X-REALITY 700
Last spring, students from Köln International School of Design, Tampere University of Applied Sciences, Academy of Media Arts Cologne and Vilnius Gediminas Technical University, with the latter being the host institution, created a projection mapping installation which will be shown at the Vilnius light festival starting on 25th of January. During a summer school the work was created to commemorate the 700th anniversary of the city and combines projection mapping, animation and text-to-image AI. Historical references but also recent events and the students own impressions were used to craft text prompts, that transformed the façade of the Vilnius town hall, guided by drawings of the underlying geometry.
