Projected onto the façade of the Musées d'art et d'histoire de Genève, Onionlab's 'Evolucio' is a piece that revolves around the graphic and sound abstraction of the concept it is named after: evolution. Created with 3D projection mapping techniques, It is construed as transformation, construction and alteration of reality through time; evolution as a discontinuous creation process as well. More images and architects' description after the break.

Taking the evolution concept even further, Evolucio was conceived as an open transformation process so that it can also be adapted to different façades and projection surfaces, and so that it can continue its transformation process. Available for further projections, it can be adapted to various physical formats, e.g. indoor structures, or different façades.
