AV for migration and displacement exhibition

In June 2015, Aurora Multimedia installed a range of projectors, screens and speakers at Shoreditch Town Hall for a week-long program of events in response to global demographic shifts and unprecedented levels of human displacement.

Bespoke projector stands and brackets helped project imagery around the basement floor of the Grade II listed building where fixing to the walls and ceiling would not have been possible.

Organised by Counterpoints Arts and featuring over 40 artists working across visual art, film, photography, Live Art, performance and design, dis/placed considered the experiences of people who are ‘staying temporarily’, sometimes for generations, in stateless limbos, detention centres, refugee camps or urban settlements – living within a country’s borders yet outside its political, legal and civic life.


Film Installation at London Fashion Week

Aurora Multimedia transformed the catwalk show space into a multi-screen video installation at Somerset House for London Fashion Week to showcase three films, which were designed to play in sequence to the invited audience.

The event featured the unveiling of exclusive content that has never been seen before and the films needed to be presented in an unique installation style whilst being large scale, high quality and impactful.

Each film was created in a different aspect ratio and orientation, which added to the design challenge for the video installation. This required one of the zones’ screens and projectors to be rotated into a portrait format. A 45 minute de-rig time presented the challenge of designing a large scale installation that could be broken down, packed and transported off site very quickly.

A total of nine 6,000 lumens Panasonic full HD projectors were used with 0.8:1 short throw lenses and nine Stumpfl Monoblox rear projection screens, built into a custom designed set.  Two S8 Ai media servers, supplied by Res, controlled the AV playback and projection across the screens in sequence. One Ai system outputted six unique 1920×1080 DVI outputs (+GUI) , the second system ran with three unique 1920×1080 DVI outputs (+GUI).
