On the Massacre of Glencoe - Projection

One of the recurring themes of the Boynton Blog is poetry walks — places around the world where poetry has been integrated into the landscape. Well, here’s another. But this one can only be visited online…and in your mind.

The Scottish design consultancy Double Take Projections uses projection mapping to analyze a surface and project images or messages onto it. “To mark the 300th anniversary of the 1715 Jacobite uprising,” Double Take projected the words of Sir Walter Scott’sOn the Massacre of Glencoe’ onto the stunning, mountainous landscape around Glencoe, Argyll, Scotland, over the course of six nights and created a video of the result. Read more about the uprising and watch (and listen to!) the time-lapse video.
