The project ‘Domus Luma’ was specially written and created for the former Augustijnenkerk (church), today known as Domus Dela. It combines projection, light and laser in the pursuit of an innova­tive and poetic narrative. The lines, curves and volumes of the 50,000 stones of the church’s façade have been drawn as closely as possible to allow the projections to blend in with reality.

It is completely due to the redrawing of each stone that the church will be­come totally transformed. Architec­tural details, each stone, opening, window, door, edge is used in a move­ment mixing technology and poetry. The tens of thousands of blocks un­der the algorithm logic will create the illusion of a complex but consistent metamorphosis with the structure of the church.

All of the animations are generated by a tailor-made software developed by Yann Nguema, allowing the digital construction to be mounted in a total­ly unique manner. The added use of light and laser comes to complete the projection offering a luminous palette that renews the beauty of tradition­al mapping.

The music is composed by Johann Guillon, Zéro Gravity. 

The project is part of a re­search process that was initiated 5 years ago by Yann Nguema. It aims to explore new proposals in the field of architectural mapping.

Born from a scientific background, Yann Nguema finally turned to the world of artistic creation. As a musician, he founded the group EZ3kiel in 1992 for which he developed the entirety of a rich visual production that has become a reference and a trademark. He focuses his work mainly on performing arts with a constant emphasis on an image-music association. Very quickly he integrated computer technology into his creative process by developing his own software and thus adding a completely interactive dimension to his productions. As a designer of exhibitions, exhibitions and scenography, he has designed numerous projects combining technology, research and poetry.
