Moving Mural


For the first time ever a 3d video-mapping animation was created and projected onto a painted mural resulting in the illusion of movement of the mural itself.
Year: 2011
Technical and Animation Director: Fernando Pérez
Audio Director:
Aleksei Lacalle
Executive Producers:
Christina y Verónica Werckmeister
Student Intern: Tania Barrera and Eder Garcia
Calle Colegio San Prudencio s/n, Vitoria-Gasteiz
Best view :
Plaza del Artium
1st projection: 23 December, 2011.


This innovative experience has accomplished something completely new: bringing together the conventional techniques of muralism with the technology of video mapping and 3d animation to tell a story.
Video mapping consists in provoking the optical illusion that a building moves by projecting large scale video over volumetric architectural surfaces,  in this case a painted mural.

The painted mural sets the stage for a story about environmental sustainability. It speaks about super-production, excessive consumption,  lack of environmental consciousness and energy waste: a hectic race to nowhere. Humanity faces a challenge: can we stop? What role do we have within nature? Can we care for, nurture and even improve our environment? And so the mural is revealed with a sense of wonder and hope. With all that we know, we have an unlimited potential for creating beauty and respecting nature.

The seed for this video was planted in participatory workshops with citizen volunteers, student artists and professionals in the summer of 2011. It was later refined and produced by 2 young local artists. The final product is a result of this colaboration.
