At the beginning of 2010 we were approached by the City of Prague to create an exceptional show to celebrate 600 years of Prague clock tower. This Old Town astronomical clock is one of the best known Prague sightseeing sites. On October 9th, 2010, it celebrated its 600th anniversary. On the occasion of this important jubilee, we have created visual screening (video mapping) that was projected right on the southern façade of the Old Town Hall building. Each part of the screening described the most important chapters from the clock history.
Computer animation introduced the construction of the clock from its first plans and Peter Parler´s stone-cutting work to the fixing of Josef Manes´s calendar board. The audience also got a unique opportunity to look inside the clock itself. The screening reminded us of dramatic historic events – Hussite wars, the execution of Czech lords and its damage at the end of WWII.
