For three days in late December, we created an outdoor installation that turned the exterior of the Aga Khan Museum into a spectacular exhibit using a series of super-bright 20,000 lumen laser projectors to cast video of the museum's contents, created by OCAD students and graduates, across it's west-facing facade.
December in Ontario can be unpredictable and unforgiving. Our biggest concern was ensuring the continuity of the installation, which in turn means keeping the equipment safe and sound. We built a small heated control room on site that housed the more sensitive equipment and we fully secured the area around the clock for the full three day experience.
We blended the fields of view from three separate projectors into a single dazzling display of more than 5 million pixels, completely enveloping the Aga Khan Museum in brilliance. Past events had damaged trees on the museum grounds, so we took particular care during delivery to ensure that everything was left exactly as we had found it.
