New York City's Empire State Building was recently the backdrop for a projection mapping display highlighting the plight of animals facing extinction. A collaboration between Travis Threlkel of Obscura Digital and filmmaker and photographer Louie Psihoyos of the Oceanic Preservation Society, the animated light show covered 33 floors of the building and was powered by 26 Christie Roadster HD20K-J and 12 Christie Roadster S+22K-J projectors, provided by Nationwide Video.

The show, "Projecting Change: The Empire State Building," used looping footage of manta rays, birds, reptiles, lions and even a gorilla that "climbed" to the top of the building. Says Threlkel, "We call projection mapping presentations of this magnitude 'weapons of mass instruction.'"
