‘o (omicron)’ by artists romain tardy and thomas vaquié with visual label antiVJ is a dazzling display of building interior video mapping created for centennial hall in wroclaw, poland, built in 1913 by architect max berg. the large-scale and site-specific lighting installation is comprised of several segments of luminous projections upon the colossal concave space of the structure. through these movements the bristol, UK-based directorial team, consisting of romain tardy and thomas vaquié, has illuminated the shapes and details particular to the interior of this UNESCO world heritage site’s massive dome.

‘when opened, hala stulecia was the largest reinforced concrete structure in the world. with a diameter of 65m it was home to the largest dome built since the pantheon in rome eighteen centuries earlier. the piece proposed for the centennial hall of wroclaw is based around the notion of timelessness in architecture, and the idea of what future has meant throughout the 20th century. taking the 1910’s as a starting point (the dome was erected in 1913), historical and artistic references were used to reveal the architecture of the space.
by using references such as fritz lang’s metropolis or the utopian projects of archigram to confront the different visions of the future at different times, romain tardy and thomas vaquié were interested in trying to create a vision of a future with no precise time reference. a timeless future.’ -romain tardy, thomas vaquié an antiVJ on video mapping project ‘o (omicron)’
