The media column works during the day as well as during the evening and at night. The coating is printed with images. This way the column can have an effect during the day in a traditional way. In the evening and at night action comes into play. Light dots, set up in a grid, produce animated ski jumpers, figure skaters etc. Light animations play with the colors of the Olympic rings. One light source shines inside and creates more perspective. The illumination from above closes the column again, the printed pictures become visible.
