This Christmas Display in the South Gives the Parol a Cool Twist
It's projected on water mist.
(SPOT.ph) It looks like teamLab's latest creation is not the only spectacle to watch for at Globe Lakeside in Nuvali, Santa Rosa, Laguna. In between the 30-minute digital-art displays by the Tokyo-based collective are larger-than-life projections of Christmas lanterns, locally known as parol. Sayaw ng Parol (Dance of the Lanterns) alternate with the Nuvali teamLab Water: Interactive Water Show from 6 p.m. to 9 p.m., from Friday to Saturday. The lakeside park, which can accommodate up to 2,500 people at a time, is open to the public for free.
This special Christmas display, which is projected on water mist that spans a width of 100 meters, is created by Manila-based projection designer G.A. Fallarme, Dutch artist Henk-Gert Lenten, and Filipino 3D motion designer Gedrick Roldan. This triumvirate was also behind a large animated video projection of Sandro Botticelli's "Birth of Venus" right at the facade of the Manila Peninsula as part of Art Fair Philippines 2019. They also worked on Carol of Lights, which is a 3D video-mapping show projected at the dome of Tower One and Exchange Plaza for Ayala Triangle Gardens' Christmas attraction for the year. Music for Sayaw ng Parol is by Von de Guzman with additional designs by Pocoy Calvento.
Sayaw ng Parol is on display at Globe Lakeside, Nuvali, Santa Rosa, Laguna. The show runs from 6 p.m to 9 p.m., from Friday to Saturday. Admission is free. For more information, follow Nuvali on Facebook.
