Presentation Title:

  • illUmiNations: Protecting Our Planet



  • On Saturday, September 20, 2014, the United Nations Department of Public Information presented a spectacular 30-story architectural projection in partnership with the Oceanic Preservation Society, Obscura Digital, and Insurgent Media. The United Nation’s General Assembly and Secretariat buildings were lit up with massive projections as part of a revolutionary call for action on global climate change.
    The event took place in connection with the UN Secretary-General’s Climate Summit. “Now is the time to take decisive action on climate change. Protecting our planet is the responsibility of each and every one of us. We must make our voices heard. These exceptional projections shown at the United Nations will help draw attention to the need to make climate action a reality in every community and every society,” said UN Secretary-General General Ban Ki-moon.
    This 10-minute presentation will reveal some of the behind-the-scene creative processes that led to the projection mapping show.
