Christie projecting architectural design
20 Sep 2007 . BY
Five synchronised Christie DS+300’s have been used to achieve a 26m projection wall, spanning five edge-butted screens at the Design Museum in London.

The display is used to highlight the work of architect Zaha Hadid in a major exhibition - Zaha Hadid: Architecture and Design - and takes the form of a series of stills, video and animation of the architect’s recently completed work.

Spread over two floors of galleries, it is the first full scale show of Zaha Hadid’s work in the UK, and one of the largest projects undertaken by the Design Museum.

Co-curated by Deyan Sudjic and Nicole Bellamy, the audio visual design was undertaken by the project team at MITES (the Moving Image Touring and Exhibition Service), a technology resource for artists and exhibitors at FACT (Foundation for Art and Creative Technology) in Liverpool.

The ultra-compact, lightweight DS+300’s, ceiling-mounted on Unicol poles, were perfect for the design team but they had to work within the difficult geometry of the room, given the presence of the support columns and large sculptures, which formed part of the exhibition. As a consequence, they could not be used symmetrically and had to project over different throw distances onto the 5m-wide painted, coherent Rosco screens.

While the centre three projectors are equipped with a standard throw lens to project over eight metres, the two at each end needed to be brought forward - to five metres - and dropped, to compensate for the presence of the columns and a reduced ceiling height; these are fitted with short-throw 1:1 lens.

The content which makes up the 15-minute sequences needed to be carefully edited by MITES using Final Cut Pro before being digitally mastered onto DVD.

The five Pioneer industrial DVD players and frame-accurate Dave Jones Synchronization unit are set up in the bulkhead, concealed by the drop ceiling. Playback is on a continuous loop, with the players being re-synchronized at the start of each loop.
