The Shrine of Remembrance has been lit up with projections by Hungarian artist Laszlo Bordos, to close Melbourne's newest arts festival.
The artist has used pioneering 3D-mapping skills to illuminate some of the world's most renowned buildings, including the Barbican Centre in London.
His world premiere work titled Sacra, commissioned for the Now or Never festival, will mark 100 years since the competition that decided on the design for the Shrine of Remembrance.
Two returned soldiers who were also architects, Philip Hudson and James Wardrop, created the winning architecture, but it was so contentious at the time it almost derailed the project.
The Shrine is a place to remember Australian service and sacrifice in wars since Federation in 1901, and has also become a cultural and design landmark for the city.
The Bordos illumination will have a "sonic landscape" soundtrack by Czech composer Ondřej Skála.
Sacra runs Friday and Saturday at the Shrine of Remembrance from 6.30pm till 10.30pm, with ten minutes between each show.
