Projection mapping turns 400ft gas tank into light show

Bremen-based projection mapping collective Urbanscreen has completed its latest project inside a 400ft oil and gas cylinder overlooking the Rhine river in Germany. The 112-metre high Gasometer Oberhausen is now used as an art space, and this project is part of 'The Appearance of Beauty' exhibition.

Urbanscreen blended 21 Epson projectors to provide 320-degrees of light onto a surface area of 20,000 square metres, to create the project called 320° Licht.

The show also features audio specially designed to fit this incredible and unique space.

320° Licht runs on a 22-minute loop, and is part of the exhibition ‘The Appearance of Beauty’ at The Gasometer Oberhausen, which runs until 30 December 2014.
