Starting from today until January 1, 2019, the 2018 Christmasland in New Taipei City, one of the most popular year-end attractions in the world, will not only showcase the biggest 3D projection mapping light shows in Taiwan and the Dreamy Lighting Overpasses but also team up with Jen Lewin, a well-known artist from New York, to debut in Taiwan her interactive installation art The Pool. Going together with “Space and Planet”, this year’s main theme, New Taipei City will be surely turned into a dream city.
In partnership with the Hexogon Solution Pte Ltd, a Singapore team whose works are popular and critically acclaimed in the world, 45 high-end projectors are used to project 3D mapping light shows to a total area of about the size of 17.6 basketball courts, including the Christmas trees and the New Taipei City Hall. Moreover, for the first time ever, 900 tubes of RGB pixel-controlled LED, each of which can deliver 256 colors, are installed at the cloister on the second floor of the New Taipei City Hall and the latest generation of a pixel-controlled lighting system provided by German’s Madrix, whose equivalent has been used in the 2018 Pyeongchang Winter Olympics, is utilized to control the tubes to create over the Citizen Plaza a gigantic circular screen that runs from the New Taipei City Hall to the Christmas tree. Meanwhile, the master of best sound effects shortlisted by the Golden Horse Awards is invited to make soundtracks for the main light shows. The vivid and delicate changes of light and shadow projected from more than 40,000 light bulbs in 360 degrees will go up and down with the exciting music, turning the flat 3D light sculpture into stereoscopic 3D, which surrounds the audience and subverts the imagination. They will surely immerse the viewers in the most exciting projection mapping experience.
Another highlight is the use of rose-golden color to deploy the new light decorations for this year’s Christmasland, creating a romantic atmosphere. Four different colors are used to create four overpasses in the four light zones, namely the romantic “Rose Golden Star Overpass”, the dream-like “Pink Star Overpass”, the dreamy “Galaxy Star Overpass” in cold-white color, and the “Blue Light Star Overpass”. Also, Jen Lewin, a famous artist from New York, is invited to display for the first time in Taiwan The Pool, an interactive light-and-shadow art installation. In addition, the “Fantasy Planet”, a giant ball-like artwork made with more than 100,000 LED lights, will perform a brilliant light show every half hour and every hour from 17:30 to 22:00 every day.
