MO Completes Two Microsoft Projects at CES

2012 is off to a good start after completing two CES projects for Microsoft.  Using the presentation software WATCHOUT, Mind Opera worked with Seattle creative agency PBJS to create Steve Balmer’s keynote presentation along with a 60 foot video wall in their Experience Pavillion at the CES trade show.   Everyone we worked with on these projects were talented, professional, and courteous all the way across the board.  It was a pleasure to work with such good people.

The River

On a recent trip to Paris I discovered this video installation at the MUSÉE DU QUAI BRANLY by artist Charles Sandison from Finland.  The installation is projected using perhaps 10 or more projectors on the floor and walls of the very long ramp that leads to the main exhibits.  I like the exhibit for its story and the way it sets a mood for the rest of the museum by connecting a river of words with the cultures that live, work and play along the rivers banks.  I am sure we will see more of these digital exhibits in the future and not just as digital signage.

Obscura Digital and the Guggenheim Museum showcased

I just can’t get enough of architectural video mapping.  This is a stunning project that wraps the Guggenheim Museum both inside and out in video.
