At the start of World War 1, when the Germans entered Belgium, the cities of Aarschot, Leuven and Dendermonde were raided. Ever since the end of the war, the cities hold an annual service of remembrance to honor the many victims that the raid has caused. We were asked to create a projection mapping installation to visually tell the story.

From a historical perspective it was important to stay close to the original story of the Martyr Cities, so we decided on a figurative visual mapping that evolves around human figures, the victims. To further emphasize the central role of the people of the Martyr Cities, we worked together with a choir as the main sound element. The visual style was inspired by propaganda posters and paintings made on the battlefront.
