One of Manchester’s most iconic buildings, the Central Library, opened its doors again to the public after being closed for almost four years to be restored. We had the chance to work on the interactive installation that filled its reading room ceiling with light and written words.

We developed the custom software which made the interactive part of the projection mapping possible. The user interface was designed and coded in Processing: a minimalist easy-to-use application which allowed everybody to participate.

People’s comments were projected on the library’s dome! A lively mixture of flashing words changing sizes here and there, all accompanied by live visuals and an awesome soundscape.
