Art Project

In this multimedia round-up, leading-edge projectors put an inspiring spin on classical and contemporary art

By Jason Holland | Published in Attractions Management 2014 issue 4

Caverns as Canvas

Multimedia art exhibits at France’s Carrières de Lumières commissioned supplier, Optoma, to project images onto the walls, ceilings and ground of a huge underground stone quarry in Les Baux-de-Provence.

Carrières de Lumières – operated by Culturespaces – is an established cultural entertainment site, showing works by a range of artists, from Gustav Klimt to Leonardo da Vinci.

The cavern is more than 16 metres (52 feet) high in places and features irregular rock formations, so the installation required the projectors and lenses to be extremely flexible. Culturespaces selected a range of more than 60 Optoma projectors to create the show, which comprises thousands of digitised images of historical works of art moving to the rhythm of a soundtrack in an immersive multisensory experience. The projectors had to be unobtrusive, bright, able to project high-quality video images in both landscape and portrait, and capable of running 10 hours a day. Among the projectors, the Optoma ProScene EH7500 and WT1 lens was chosen for its ability to produce a high-quality large image from a short throw distance.

Making waves at MoMA

New York’s Museum of Modern Art (MoMA) used Christie projectors for its presentation of a touring moving image installation by renowned artist and filmmaker Isaac Julien. Nine projectors were installed for the exhibition Ten Thousand Waves, an example of advanced visual display technology being used to help facilitate an artist’s creative vision. The installation features a 50-minute presentation based on the Morecambe Bay tragedy of 2004 in which 23 Chinese cockle pickers drowned on a flooded sandbank. Julien’s visuals incorporate archival footage and audio recordings, while interweaving images of contemporary Chinese culture and its ancient myths. Eight Christie WU14K-M WUXGA DLP projectors and one Christie HD14K-M 1080 HD DLP projector were selected for the project, displaying the work on nine doubled-sided screens ranging in size from 16 to 23 feet (5 to 7 metres) wide. The screens were hung at multiple levels and locations throughout the Donald B and Catherine C Marron Atrium exhibition space. The museum also made use of Christie’s InControl app to individually control and calibrate every aspect of the projectors wirelessly.

Unseen details revealed

Large installation projectors from Sony helped bring the immersive video works of Chinese artist Wang Gongxin to life at the National Gallery of Victoria in Australia. The exhibition Wang Gongxin: Video Artist featured three works on themes of contemporary and traditional Chinese culture. Wang is one of China’s first and most influential video artists. The works were projected by 14 Sony VPL-FH31Bs in vibrant colour. The artist said the high-quality technology in the projectors allowed details that would have been lost in the past to be revealed, meaning the works could be presented at their full potential. Sony’s VPL-FH31B projector offers a native WUXGA (1920x1200) resolution with 4,300 lumens as well as full HD compatibility.

Russian Immersion

Polyscreen installations incorporating the latest projection, light and sound equipment have helped display more than 400 Russian avant-garde paintings and sculptures in a new way. Film director Peter Greenaway and Saskia Boddeke created the Golden Age of Russian Avant-garde exhibition at the Moscow Manege Museum, which compiled artworks from a range of museums and private collections. Barco was chosen as the visualisation partner and, through its local distributor CTC Capital, provided 12 ultra-bright HDX-W20 projectors to fully immerse visitors in the exhibition. The projectors offered a light output of 20,000 lumens each, reproducing the works in high resolution on 12 different screens.
