700-year-old church in beautiful colours

To celebrate the 700th anniversary of the consecration of the collegiate church in Münstermaifeld, Germany, Light Artist Peter Baur of LEDlichtkunst bathed the structure in beautiful lights using a multitude of Showtec products. Showtime started Saturday 3 September at 20:30 hours, at which time hobby photographers were invited to begin shooting for the photo contest that had been organised around the event.

Light Artist Peter Baur of LEDlichtkunst in Polch, Germany, put his light inventory to work and used 24 Showtec Helix 4000 Q4 and S5000 Q4 outdoor wash lights, and 9 Showtec Archi Painters to light up the façade of the Münstermaifeld collegiate church in spectacular colours. Consecrated in 640 AC by Archbishop Modoald, the church was a centre of pilgrimage in the Middle Ages. The enormous westwork is one of the most impressive, fortified churches of the Middle Ages in the central Rhine and Moselle region in Germany, and is a harmonious interplay of different architectural styles from the High and Late Romanesque to the Early and High Gothic. Through the light installation, the already imposing building in the night sky of the town of Münstermaifeld showed itself in a completely different perspective.
