Night in the Library - Light Painting in Goerlitz

Today I would like to share with you some great memories of an incredible experience.

As the easternmost city of Germany, Görlitz is the place to be if you’re after a generous dose of culture. Together with friends from Saxony, I spent a night in the museum/library. Thanx to the great Organization of Danilo Strauss and company of good friends Felix Leda from Ferpixelt, Feli, and Natalia I got to spent a wonderful time light painting in Görlitz.

Görlitz has a rich architectural heritage on display. (there is to explore lots of historic remains of Gothic, Renaissance, Baroque, Neoclassical, Art Nouveau times).
The Barockhaus is the most significant Baroque building in the region. It hosts the artistically formed "Oberlausitzische Bibliothek der Wissenschaften" Engl: Upper Lusatian Library of Sciences and its collection mostly dedicated to science.

Founded by Karl Gottlob Anton in celebration of the enlightenment, it contains around 140.000 volumes, manuscripts, and handwritten books as old as from the 11th, documenting the history and culture, art, nature, economy, and society of the region.

Whether you are a bookworm or not, this architectural Gem inspired my curious sense of engineering in wonder. We had access to the wooden vaulted shelves filled with handwritten, copper printer medieval science books.


Here is the Library fully lit. What an amazing location to be in.

How was it done? Making Of video

You want to see more of that place. Watch the video it shares some pretty cool impressions.

Many thanks to the Die Freunden der Görlitzer Samlungen e.V., who trusted on us to photograph their cultural heritage, run through their corridors of history in the dark. Special thanks for staying up so late on such a cold evening.

My shout out to Danilo Strauss, for holding and sharing access to Görlitz precious gems as well as to Feli our model, and Felix Leda for a great collaboration here.
Thank you Natalia for filming and helping with the edit.

I hope it was somewhat inspirational. If you have more questions please do not hesitate. I am happy to share my knowledge.
