Winter Palace on fifth
new york, ny
For the 2015 holiday season, the facade of Saks Fifth Avenue, in New York City, was brightly illuminated with a bold display - temporarily transforming the iconic landmark building into an icy Winter Palace. Every 10 minutes, pedestrians were treated to a high-energy light show accompanied by David Foster's arrangement of "Carol of The Bells".
The massive display (nearly 200 feet wide and over 100 feet tall) featured carefully-produced media content which was painstakingly mapped to beautifully intricate physical structures.
