 the observatory: digital city installation by citrico grafico + cocolab took place as part of the inaugural abierto mexicano de diseno.

 

set against the spectacular background of the city as seen from floor 35 of the latin american tower, observatory: digital city allowed the public to observe, get up close to and know more about the city through motion graphic projections, static graphics and documentary film that were projected onto the windows of the tower. these visuals were complimented with an interactive audio installation about the day-to-day life of tradesmen at work in the centro histórico.
