Mosaika Sound and Light Show | Mosaika spectacle son et lumière, a set by Canada's Capital - Capitale du Canada on Flickr.Caught this by accident while walking around Parliament Hill at sunset the other day. The Ottawa natives were too cool to stick around, but we're glad we did.
I'm an immigrant to Canada, and it took me a long time to get my citizenship, but moments like this laying on the lawn with my son and wife in front of Parliament seeing such an honest and heartfelt expression of the Canadian experience was truly moving.
If you're in Ottawa and are hanging out downtown around sunset, do yourself a favour and go catch this show.
I've got a soft spot for building projection systems anyway, it's architecture made fluid and digital. I'd love to take the cold, institutional grey building bricks of my school and digitize it like this, but the projectors are wicked expensive! When you see something like Mosaika, you begin to realize just how powerful fluid digital architecture and lighting can be.
