About this video

See how the Library's La Trobe Reading Room was transformed into an illuminated 360-degree artwork for White Night 2015!

Using time-lapse videocam, this book's-eye view of our famous dome captures the Eat me projection as it played out over the event's 12 hours.

Specially commissioned by the State Library for White Night Melbourne 2015, Eat me was created by renowned French artists Antoine + Manuel.

Accompanied by the electro-pop sounds of Melbourne musician Sui Zhen, the choreographed animation turned the dome into a whimsical, abstract dreamscape for the night.
