Jerusalem Festival of Light 2014: “Circus of Light”
Posted by Avital Pinnick on June 26, 2014
“Jerusalem Circus of Light” (Nuno Maya and Carole Purnelle, OCUBO, Portugal) is a clever video-mapping of the old Rothschild building in Batei Mahsei Square, Jewish Quarter. The installation starts with the familiar skyline of Jerusalem at night and turns it into a circus. I love how the architectural elements and cypress trees are incorporated into the video. The collages of people applauding reminded me of Terry Gilliam’s Monty Python animations.
I recorded a short video (bottom of posting) with a handheld camera.
