Basilica of St. Michael in Bordeaux, France
Dekom France, a Digital Projection partner recently provided the projectors for ‘ARTEFACT’ event at the Basilica of St Michael.
The Audio Visual performance was a collaboration between three artists Joanie Lemercier, Damien Schneider and Eva Darracq. The show encompassed live organ music, electronic sounds and extensive projection mapping onto the church’s gothic architecture.
The whole projected facade of the catherdral was modelled and the projectors and images calibrated and aligned using Memento Autodesk and VVV software (http://vvvv.org/)
TITAN Super Quad projectors were chosen for their compact size which allowed them to be rigged out of site of the 3500 guests that visited the site on the day of the show. Due to the high brightness of the projectors, only 2 edge-blended units were required to fill the full face of the walls.
We would like to thank Dekom France (http://www.dekom.com/) for the photographs used in this case study.
