How We Created the City of Lights 3D Projection Mapping
More PAV projects and eventsThe Latest
Our brief from Perth Festival was to bring the WA Museum Boola Bardip’s stunning internal exhibits to life on the façade of one of Perth’s most beautiful buildings – Hackett Hall.
The unlimited creative license allowed our multimedia star and projection mapping guru Kye Howard to design an eye popping series of scenes utilising PAV’s maximum projection firepower. Projected exhibits include Otto the whale, spiders, dinosaurs, Ammonites, the colonial WA flag and even Luke Steel’s stage head dress.
A Night Inside Out at the Museum also features abstract and avant-garde offerings such as early computing, flora, WA’s gold mining explosion and knitted art pieces. Neon paint from exhibits drips down the façade and sequined dresses cover the building revealing the post-it notes of time that have logged and recorded the many stories of Boola Bardip. Finishing with the heartbeat of the building that represents West Australian life and all that lives within the walls. Elements are mixed and jumbled all trying to break free from the foundations of the building utilising typical illusion-based projection mapping techniques.
Created over several months, Kye begins mapping projects with a detailed building scan that offers maximum creative opportunities and vitally – depth. Stunning visuals and smooth transitions are designed using state-of-the-art software such as Cinema 4D, X-particles, Redshift and After Effects. PAV Events is proud to add The City of Lights to our catalogue of mapping projects that features Perth Mint, The Balayi Festival and Boorna Waanginy: The Trees Speak.
