Projection specialist Ross Ashton from The Projection Studio in London and sound artist Karen Monid produced their third projection mapping install, called “Triquetra” in the historical city of York, UK, for the 2013 ‘Illuminating York’ Festival of Art. The installation was beamed onto Clifford’s Tower. Once the keep at York’s famous Castle, the imposing Clifford’s Tower sits on top of a tall mound and is one of York’s signature pieces of architecture as well as among the most popular attractions in Yorkshire. The giant images stretched 75 meters wide across the base of the mound and were 25 meters tall, filling the whole space, lifting the landmark out of its surroundings using 3D modeling to accentuate the shape of the architecture and landscape for the 15 minute looped video show.
