Sadly, there is no way that justice can be done in this post to adequately convey the sheer awesomeness of the light show currently being performed three times a night at the University of Geneva. The show, called “Coup de Soleil” (a clever double entendre whose literal translation is “sunburn”, but has the double meaning here of “sunburst” or something similar.) What makes this show so unique is that the “screen” is the Administration Building of the University of Geneva. I took this photo of the building the following day, in broad daylight.
The audience assembles on the lawn, and then the show begins. Here is what the opening sequence looks like. Keep in mind, this is being projected onto a building.
Here’s another really cool part. The “windows” of the building are actually part of the projected image, and not the actual windows. This production is seriously cool, or as the french are fond of saying, “supercool!” .
