Studio Droog’s Tree of Light was recently revealed at the Rijksmuseum and it is now claiming to be the biggest holographic projection of a Christmas tree to date.

The tree is projected onto a canvas of 33 acrylic panels that cover a massive distance of 20’ x 25’ in width and height. Four projectors create the image and over time, it changes color from blue to green. Shapes, stars and moving branches are integrated into the digital tree as well, to make it seem even more life-like than it is. What’s interesting about the tree is that its panels seem quite translucent and the tree itself quite opaque. This effect was created by using titanium oxide to catch and reflect the light, which seems quite magical.

The striking holographic tree will be on display at the Rijksmuseum until January 6th, 2014.
