An art display called The Saga–lights projected onto a building in a twenty-three minute display, cycling through the history of the city. These are just a few pictures, but it was quite a spectacle. So much color and movement, and a surprising amount of depth.

What I especially enjoyed were the pictures that overlaid a different style of building facade on the cathedral. Everything lined up, but it represented different times through the decorations and shapes of doors and windows.

A story told, not just in pictures representing actual events, but also in the changing way we built our homes.

How cool is that?


About Caitlin Stern

I have a MA in English, and have so many fantasy/urban fantasy WIPs it's not even funny. I'm an avid reader of science fiction, fantasy, mystery, romance, biography, fiction, and anything else that catches my interest. I collect books, and bookmarks I find that are visually appealing and useful.

  1. This is such a unique alternative to art. What city did this take place in. Wish we could get something like that near here.

      It’s in San Antonio (TX), and going on periodically for the rest of the year.

      The artist is Xavier de Richemont, and he’s done other stuff–so maybe he’ll end up near wherever you are.
