DBW FOR ‘FIAT LUX':AMAZING IMAGES ON ST.PETER’S BASILICA SHOT IN 4K-UHD

On December 8th, a humanitarian coalition comprised of Paul G. Allen’s Vulcan Inc., the Li Ka Shing Foundation and Okeanos, in partnership with The Oceanic Preservation Society and Obscura Digital, and under the auspices of the World Bank Group’s Connect4Climate initiative, has presented a gift of contemporary public art entitled ‘Fiat Lux: Illuminating our Common Home’ to Pope Francis on the opening day of the Extraordinary Jubilee of Mercy.

Beautiful images of our shared natural world – featuring the work of some of the world’s most notable photographers and filmmakers including Sebastião Salgado, Joel Sartore, Chris Jordan, Steve McCurry – have been projected onto the façade of St.Peter’s Basilica in a contemporary work of public art that tells the visual story of the interdependency of humans and life on earth with the planet.

The shots of the cinematic event, viewed via live broadcasts and online streaming, have been realized in 4K-UltraHD – and in HD simultaneously – with staff and technologies of DBW Communication.
