Projection Mapping is the process that effectively animates stationary objects (such as a building) with moving imagery projected onto it's surface. Taking into account the various angles and exterior elements of structures, projection mapping brings inanimate objects to life, creating a one-of-a-kind, immersive experience for the audience.
The Perot Museum of Nature and Science worked directly with Dallas based company, 900lbs of Creative, to create a visual story on the museum's distinctive exterior. 900lbs has created compelling content for a broad range of "canvases" over the years but this was a truly unique opportunity. Guests of the Night at the Museum: Discover the Perot event on November 17th were welcomed by the 150ft by 100ft custom video, which used bold colors and illustrations inspired by the geometric shapes of the building to artistically represent the 11 halls of the museum. For each hall, the 900lbs team conceptualized a story inside of a diorama box that looked as if it was in the museum.
"This has been an incredible project for the 900lbs team and we'd like to thank all of those who have been a part of the development of the Perot museum. It's an amazing place and such an important new addition to the city of Dallas," said 900lbs president and co-founder Steve Deitz. "We have a great team and it was a solid team effort with our artists employing their many strengths throughout the project."
