A series of video animations produced by IED Barcelona are promoting this year's World Press Freedom Day as part of new joint project with partners from Fabrica, Benetton's research centre on communication. The Live Windows project is an initiative by Fabrica conceived to create a new language between people and retail space. Thanks to a co-operative network among major educational and cultural institutions, it promotes and encourages the exchange of ideas among young talented designers, whose works are published on the mediawalls of selected Benetton flagship stores all over the world.
UNRIC has partnered with Fabrica to raise awareness on a number of International Observances, reviewing and endorsing selected video projects submitted by schools around Europe. For this year's World Press Freedom Day, a video by Amparo Cativiela & Matylda Zawadzka (Tutor: Juan Guasch) caught the eye.
World Book and Copyright Day - 23 April
Students of the Designschule München took inspiration from four classics of the world's literature, and imagined a magic library where the books move on the shelves giving life to their characters and their stories: Snowwhite and her apple, Romeo climbing the balcony, Scheherazade enchanting her audience and the threatening Moby Dick emerging from the waters.
The Live Window was screened in Munich, Barcelona and Milan, it was the first series of videos we chose to partner with.
