Panasonic recently supplied and installed 59 sets of PT-RZ670BE SOLID SHINE Laser projectors (6,500 lm WUXGA) to National Museum of Singapore. In one of the largest deployments ever for a single museum venue, the projectors mapped images on a dome ceiling and corridor to tell Story of the Forest, an interactive multi-media exhibition commissioned by National Museum of Singapore and created by Japanese artist collective teamLab. The exhibition has since attracted widespread attention and acclaim in the media.
Behind the Scenes with Story of the Forest
Founded in 1887, National Museum of Singapore is the oldest museum in the country. Known for its creative exhibitions, the institution recently renovated a cylindrical glass centerpiece building to push boundaries with interactive projection technology. National Museum of Singapore commissioned teamLab to create artwork inside the glass structure. Utilizing the space to full effect, Story of the Forest opened to the public on December 10, 2016, and has since attracted global media attention for its inventive blend of art and technology. Two aspects of the installation include a seamless 144 m projection in the gallery corridor, and a large multi-screen dome projection. In the corridor, visitors can use a dedicated “Story of the Forest” smartphone app to photograph projected images of flora and fauna and receive augmented information about them on their devices.
