Obscura Digital Lights Up Abu Dhabi Mosque With Mesmerizing Light Projections (VIDEO)

In honor of the 40th Anniversary of the United Arab Emirates National Day, a San Francisco creative agency called Obscura Digital created an insanely beautiful light projection, cast onto a mosque in Abu Dhabi.

The Sheikh Zayed Grand Mosque Projections Project features geometric patterns which emphasize the mosque's form as well as luminescent vines which wind and blossom in 3D on the mosque's walls. They used 44 projectors and the result is nothing short of magical. Seriously, watch it, now.
