Urström at the 1999 Stockholm Water Festival



    The animated .gif files on this page were created by capturing still frames from a video tape of the show and then compiling them into animations. They are presented in black frames to give a better sense of the show. Special thanks to Adela Lopez-Bago for the use of her video equipment.


Palace Facade projections

    These image projections took place over a span of several minutes with cross fades between each image. Here we present them as a series of stills. These photos were shot from the Opera side of the site (you can see one of the giant scrims over the water in the top right of the animated images).

To get an idea of the scale of the images below, here is a photo of the Palace taken around sunset from a similar vantage point as the animation photos below.

Finale Beams

    This is a very short animation loop showing the sky filled with beams as the woman appears over the water at the climax of the show.
