Visual attractiveness of the urban environment
The penetration of digital technologies into all spheres of life in the 21st century has rapidly increased the speed of information transmission and formed new habits in the perception of various symbols. This process generated a new public demand for a widespread increase in the visual attractiveness of the urban environment. The response to such a request was the development and widespread dissemination of video mapping as an important form of urban art. Another notable trend of recent times is the trend of large-scale constructions of New Year's light-spatial structures, modeling another level of reality of urban architecture, different from the ordinary one. The breadth and mass distribution of such “urban decoration” in completely different parts of the globe, significantly different from the established traditions of festive decoration of cities even 30–40 years ago, forces us to take a closer look at this phenomenon, which in recent years has become a striking feature of urban life in the 21st century.
