King Sprong

The lightfestival of Ghent asked us to create a projection to announce the festival. For over a month, the gorilla was climbing the 90 meter tall building at the station of Ghent from dusk until dawn.
Over 800.000 visitors came to the festival and discovered 37 light installations spread across the city.

“Over the years we’ve become known for our minimappings, but when the city of Ghent asked us to create a project to
announce their upcoming lightfestival, we decided to make a massive gorilla climb a 90-meter-tall building!”
