 A projection-mapping event took place at Kwansei Gakuin University over three days from December 19 through 21. A team of eight KG students produced moving pictures using computers and projected them onto the surface of the Clock Tower on Nishinomiya Uegahara Campus, a Registered Tangible Cultural Property of Japan. The event was accompanied by music.

 This event was made possible through collaboration between Kwansei Gakuin University and the team of students, who had thought of holding a projection-mapping event at the Clock Tower, the symbol of Kwansei Gakuin, to commemorate the 125th anniversary of the institution.

 The theme of this projection-mapping event was “Christmas.” Pictures representing the Nativity of Jesus and the history of Kwansei Gakuin were projected to the sound of Christmas carols. Visitors were allowed to participate in this event in various ways, such as moving around the fantastic pictures projected onto the Clock Tower using their smartphones.

 The team representative, Teru Ozawa, a junior in the School of Science and Technology, said, “I’m glad to have held this event with so many people at the Clock Tower, the symbol of Kwansei Gakuin.”
