Overview

HOLIDAY STAR is an animated projection mural commissioned for LET’S GLOW SF (Dec 3-12, 2021), which was billed as “the largest holiday projection map event in the U.S.”. The work was projected nightly on a building facade on Market St. in the heart of downtown San Francisco.

Goals

The work was commissioned as part of the LET'S GLOW SF projection map holiday festival, as part of a city-led effort to rejuvenate the pandemic-stricken downtown area and financial district of San Francisco.

Process

The work was created by Sean Capone using a variety of digital animation techniques; the visuals were inspired by holiday light & ornament displays, the city's psychedelic street art scene, and the iconic architecture of San Francisco itself.
