The annual international “Circle of Light” festival in the Russian capital has broken its own record for the Largest projected image once again – and measuring more than 2.5 times larger, this year the video animation was even more spectacular.
A dazzling 50,458 m² (543,125.39 ft²) image was projected onto the front of the Moscow State University main building, in front of a huge audience of amazed festival-goers. (The 2015 record-breaking display had a total surface area of 19,099.3 m².)
The stunning show was created using high-res video mapping designed by a team of specialist 3D graphic artists.
The colourful display depicted two stories – one relating to the history of the university and the other about the protected areas of Russian landscape – and they were accompanied by voiceovers from actors, musicians and television presenters.
The Circle of Light festival simultaneously set a record for the Greatest light output in a projected image with a 4,264.346 lumens.
Guinness World Records adjudicator Seyda Subasi Gemici attended the event to officiate the two record attempts and present certificates to the organisers once their success was confirmed.
The light festival is a project of the Moscow Government and the event was coordinated by LBL Communication Group.
