  5. "Horseraces, souks, fruits, crafts, trains, roulettes, steps, neons, roofs, and colors, colors, colors... Colors of an Old Beirut remembers a vibrant city in the 60s in an original 3D mapping animation that leaves walls longing."

    Colors of an Old Beirut was specially commissioned by UFA Assurances and was projected for 6 nights during December of 2010 in Martyrs' Square, Lebanon. (ufa3DMappingEvent.com)

    Colors of an old Beirut is an original piece merging exclusive footage of Beirut from the 1960s with cutting edge graphics and techniques of 3D projection mapping in a novel amalgam. In this piece commissioned by UFA Assurances, I collaborated with talented New York based video artist Cem Adiyaman to remember old Beirut without being regretful or nostalgic. On the contrary, colors of an old Beirut seeks to immerse the audience in an illusion of time-travel through an animated building, and leaves walls, windows and bricks longing for a palette whose hints are behind us, yet still around us. The piece is designed to, and accompanied by dramatic acoustic music by Paris-based Lebanese rapper Rayess Bek.

    art direction and animation: Ayah Bdeir and Cem Adiyaman
