The Macula Comes Alive - Celebration

This is a repost from Kottke.org

After 600 years, a clock comes alive

If you liked the video mapping on the IAC building, this one might be even better. For the 600th anniversary of the construction of the tower clock in Prague, The Macula projected a really great video on the tower...watch at least through the brick stacking animation.


I thought the video was so much fun.  A great way to celebrate a monument's 600th anniversary. My wife has actually seen it...she lived in Germany for a couple years and got to go all over Europe too...she loved Prague when she visited.

Hope you enjoy it.  Also puts you in the Halloween mood.

  1. That is cool. They did something similar on some of the fed bulidings along Pennsylvania Ave here in DC a few years ago, but without all of the animation.

    The .cz rocks!

  2. You know, it took me years to actually go visit the state Capitol and I have a store 6 blocks away from it. I wonder if people in DC or Boston or Philly or New York take the incredible history around them for granted. Do locals go on tours of the monuments?

  3. I do. But only at night. That's the best time anyway.
