Prague Monument Doubles as Artist’s Canvas

The Astronomical Clock Tower, situated in Prague’s Old Town Square, just celebrated its 600th anniversary. And to help mark the occasion, artists projected visuals mappings onto the facade – ones that illuminated the history and symbolic significance of the tower for the crowd. These light shows are getting a little en vogue. Cambridge University recently punctuated its 800th anniversary celebration by turning its buildings into a canvas. And Ukraine marked its independence this year with a light show of its own.
