Video mapping created during a creation residency at Arenberg Creative Mine, as part of the Video Mapping Festival #1.
Video mapping on the 3-D model of Arenberg Creative Mine, former mine site registered as a UNESCO World Heritage site, created by the video mapping specialist Donato Maniello / Studio Glowarp, and the anthropologist/archaeologist Valeria Amoretti (Italy) during a 3-week creation residency at Arenberg Creative Mine in February 2018.
This is an unconventional mapping: the aim of this installation is to valorize the Arenberg mining site through a video projection on a model in scale of the area (1:500). Not only the buildings and their functions, but also the people who worked in the mine, their feelings, their emotions. This installation is halfway between emotionality and didactics: the voices of the last miners of the Arenberg Mine will accompany the user on a journey through history and humanity.
