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.
