‘Urban Safari’ was presented at the lightfestival in Ghent in February 2018.
Over 800.000 visitors came to the festival and discovered 37 light installations spread across the city.
Biologists warn that we are on the verge of a sixth mass extinction. 75 procent of all species could go extinct in just a few centuries due to human overpopulation and over-consumption. We wanted to make this rather abstract subject tangible by bringing extinct animals back to life and dynamically projecting them on the buildings in Ghent.
