There must be some kind of way outta here; an homage to the collective struggle of stagnation during the covid-19 pandemic and the anticipation of both change and more lockdowns.

The animation was part of a 47min Projection Mapping Show by Klasse Kartak for Graphic Design, University of Applied Arts Vienna. The Location is the Flaktower at Augarten in the 2nd district. This Tower, with a height of 42 meters, is one of six large reinforced concrete defense and protection structures in Vienna, built between 1942 and 1945 as huge air raid shelters with mounted anti-aircraft guns and fire control systems.

All Along the Watchtower
Jimi Hendrix (Bob Dylan)











There must be some kind of way outta here
Said the joker to the thief
There's too much confusion
I can't get no relief

Business men, they drink my wine
Plowmen dig my earth
None will level on the line
Nobody offered his word

No reason to get excited
The thief, he kindly spoke
There are many here among us
Who feel that life is but a joke
But, uh, but you and I, we've been through that
And this is not our fate
So let us stop talkin' falsely now
The hour's getting late

All along the watchtower
Princes kept the view
While all the women came and went
Barefoot servants, too
Well, uh, outside in the cold distance
A wildcat did growl
Two riders were approaching

And the wind began to howl

All along the watchtower
All along the watchtower
