Video Mapping “Fatima - Time of Light” closes celebration of the Centennial
The presentation of Video Mapping is scheduled for October 12th, 13th and 14th in the Prayer Area
The Video Mapping “Fatima - Time of Light”, commissioned by the Shrine of Fatima to close the celebrations of the Centennial of the Apparitions, will have its first presentation in Fatima on October 12th at the end of the procession of silence, after midnight and then again at 10:30 p.m. on October 13th and 14th.
The innovative audio-visual display, by means of the video Mapping 3D projection technique, develops from the praying experience that thousands of pilgrims live in this Shrine.
It is composed of 7 scenes “The reflection of the Light of God”, “The Heart of Mary, Immaculate and triumphant, leads to God”, “The Church sings the Message of Fatima”, “The paths of the pilgrims”, “In Fatima we hear a message of peace for the world”, “In Fatima we celebrate the God who is near the human being” and “In Fatima we illuminate our heart” - the purpose of this audio-visual production is to project the light of Fatima in the heart of each faithful by leading him closer to the heart of God.
The facade of the Basilica of Our Lady of Fatima, on which video will be projected, will acquire a special light, transforming itself into an historical narrative of the place over one hundred years, reconstructing the memory of the most prominent spiritual and historical milestones related to Message that the Virgin Mary delivered in Cova de Iria.
Three days are scheduled for this Video Mapping projection and is open to the general public. It was commissioned in the scope of the celebrations of the Centennial of the Apparitions by the Shrine of Fatima to the Spanish company Acciona Producciones y Diseño, a Spanish company based in Seville since 1990. It is focused mainly on cultural engineering projects, specifically museums, exhibitions, interactive facilities, multimedia shows, 3D, Video mapping, artistic lighting, among others.
In June 2016 (24th to 26th), the Shrine of Fatima promoted in Aljustrel and in Valinhos, a similar multimedia experience, which marked the 100 years of history of the apparitions of the Angel to the three little Shepherds.
The multimedia immersive path “The light of the Angel”, from Atelier Ocubo, had proposed to invigorate some of the places and itineraries that make thousands of people visit the Shrine and the surrounding region.
The multimedia immersive path was composed of video mapping projections on the houses of the Seers, on the sites of the three apparitions - Well of Arneiro and Loca do Cabeço - and on the monument of Valinhos.
