Emirates to light up Karlín at the Signal Festival
Emirates is set to light up Karlin at the Signal Festival in Prague, taking place from 10 – 13 October 2019. The Emirates light installation will take visitors on an immersive and enchanting journey across its extensive network. The four day digital art festival is the largest cultural event in Czech Republic and a unique integration of art, city space and modern technology.
Showcasing creative light shows in various locations across the city – the festival turns the historical centre of Prague, (Mala Strana, Old Town and Karlín) into a whimsical landscape of light installations, 3D video mapping and projections using cutting edge technology.
Emirates has partnered with Signal Festival to display an exceptional 3D video-mapping projection in the historic district of Karlin. The captivating light show will take the audience on a memorable journey across its network via Dubai. Behind a rainbow colour scheme, the light show takes off with the iconic Emirates A380 departing Prague to Dubai and travelling onwards to Sydney, Thailand, and Bali before arriving in the Maldives. The one minute video will be projected 80 times over the course of four days at a school building Lyčkovo náměstí in Karlín.
