EVERYTHINGS IS ILLUMINATED

As part of the Olympic closing ceremony, Moritz Waldemeyer conceived a vibrant collection of LED-embedded carnival costumes for the hand over to Rio de Janeiro, – proudly honoring the brazilian culture. One hundred and forty LED-encrusted carnival outfits, miraculously programmed to pulse to the beat of eighty Brazilian drummers. For the Paralympics Moritz executed Sixteen banners, lit with LED lights. Each banner transformed into a mobile display that became an integral part of the choreography. The graphic innovation was rendered by the LEDs arranged on the banners, which reproduced a new and unique design – the ‘scale’ lines – recreating appealing animations and lights moving simultaneously with the music.
