A fascinating project that required careful thought before solutions were born.
The client set us various tasks:
Control of lighting, climate and curtains via a mobile application
Wi-Fi 6 network
Multiroom audio system with the ability to play streaming services, use microphones, projectors and artist equipment
In this project we had to find solutions to connect seemingly incompatible things. For complete immersion in the atmosphere, the imaginary “spirit of the gallery” leads guests from object to object, telling a legend, highlighting the necessary objects with lighting and creating a special atmosphere. During the performance, various equipment interacts according to timing: gallery lighting controlled by DALI, disco lasers via DMX, 3D mapping on surfaces controlled by Resolume Arena and an audio track via the Bluesound PRO audio system. As soon as the performance ends, the room transforms. Soft lights come on, the curtains open automatically and background music flows from the speakers.
On normal days, when the gallery is open to visitors, the gallery light monitors the movement of guests using four-zone KNX presence sensors, illuminating art objects with soft dimming as they approach.
It was an interesting experience for us and for the customer.
