For four evenings from 28 September to 1 October, the Roche Tower in Basel, Switzerland, will be transformed into a unique art installation and monument to celebrating life’s special moments. Numerous artists and members of the community have contributed to an art show that will envelop the Roche Tower with bright lights and specialty sounds. Together with Basel, we celebrate all moments— big and small.
"Celebrate Moments — inspired by Basel": This "slideshow" has been co-created by citizens from the region. Locals were asked to submit photos and drawings to be projected onto the tower that "celebrate special moments in life."
"Celebrate Humanity — designed by FHNW": students from the University of Applied Sciences Northwestern (FHNW), Basel, Switzerland, unveil their semester projects that explore the many meanings of Humanity.
"Celebrate Life — presented by Roche": This chapter was created in collaboration with a renowned video-mapping content provider and is accompanied by a specially composed piece by DJ Worakls and the Basel Symphony Orchestra. Its motto is "Celebrate life."
