Festival "Wonder of the Light" in St. Petersburg

"Wonder of the Light" - the annual Festival of Light held in St. Petersburg since 2016. Every year the Festival transforms one of the venues of the city with the help of 3D mapping technology and turns the audience’s view and breathes new life into famous sights.

The festival amazes the audience with innovative solutions. "Live" artists, actors and acrobats took part in the plot of a multimedia performance on the facade of the Youth theater. A method of creating live pictures using VR technology (virtual reality) was applied for the first time. And the official application of the Festival opened a portal to the new world for the audience - AR technology (augmented reality) which allows to create a three-dimensional animation that expands the space. The mapping paintings were supplemented with objects that seemed to “fly out” from the video projection onto the viewer, developing the story-line and creating an amazing effect of presence in a voluminous, virtual world.

The 2019 Autumn Festival turned Palace Square into a digital garden of the future. The light-musical show immersed the audience in a mystical space and allowed them to experience a new immersive experience. Giant Lego flowers, pixel plants and mine-craft trees made every adult remember what it means to be a child, dreaming and looking at everything from the bottom up.

What know-how awaits the audience this year and which architectural structure will become a canvas for the work of 3D-designers and VR-artists is still kept secret.
