Immersive Experiences / Gallery Installations
We've created many fully immersive experiences where the audience is enveloped within the projected space. These types of setups usually require a minimum of three projectors, but the final number can be anything depending on the size and requirements of the space. The content has the possibility of being interactive with the media making every visit a unique experience.
Previous installations have included galleries, shopping centres, bars, nightclubs, climbing walls/centres, warehouses and bespoke made spaces including curved walled spaces. We can take control of both content and the design and technical programming.
Some examples are below
Tom - Wilkie Branson
"A sublime, slow-burn study of isolation"
Part dance performance, part film, this solo show is a note-perfect portrayal of the all-consuming nature of loneliness" Lyndsey Winship, The Guardian
TOM is a dance for camera installation created by award-winning choreographer and film-maker, Wilkie Branson. Wilkie explores storytelling using the hip hop language of b-boying, bringing it together with cutting-edge technologies including animation, projection mapping and surround sound.
TOM is set in a hinterland between the civilised world and the wilderness, it tells the story of one man’s journey to rediscover who he really is.
Commissioned and Co-Produced by Sadler’s Wells. Co-Commissioned by Pavilion Dance South West. Supported using public funding by the National Lottery through Arts Council England with additional support from the Unicorn Theatre, Hive House London, Theatre Bristol, Capture Reality and Floating Harbour Website Design. Research and development supported by Sadler’s Wells New Wave Associate Programme and Lakeside Arts Centre, Nottingham.
TOM’s physical installation is made of 3 pepper scrim holographic gauzes, onto which the film is projection mapped, giving a layered, almost pop-up effect, to view the film.
Tom is chosen as part of the Venice Dance Biennale 2021.

Djanogly Art Gallery 'Highfields Lido' Installation
During the summer of 2017 we helped the Djanogly Arts Gallery make a splash by helping them celebrate 25 years of Nottingham Lakeside Arts.
Creating a fully immersive installation within the Djanogly Gallery we re-imagined the old Highfields Park Lido, Nottingham largest outdoor swimming pool which was previously on the exact same site. The commission took visitors through a unique and interactive dip through the decades, from the opening of the Lido in 1924, to its final season in 1980, and on to the opening of the Djanogly Gallery in 1992.
Eight projectors, two media servers, and two Kinect Cameras were required to fully cover the 130m2 gallery space with the artwork that included 13 true to life scale synchronized swimmers both in and out of the water.
