Using Technology to Recreate Works of Art
For the past few months, we’ve had some fantastic creative challenges presented to us that culminated in a visually awe-inspiring show. And that was part of the challenge – one show, two venues. Chase Creative approached this show as we do every other – with enthusiasm, and with the recognition of the opportunity to create something amazing and memorable.
The first venue was DeVos Place Convention Center in Grand Rapids, MI. Here we worked with the client to create a stage look that included red velour drape, and screens and banners made to look like beautifully framed artwork. The frames for the projection screens were carefully constructed and attached to the aluminum screen frame, and these were flown from ceiling mounted truss. The center screen was an incredible 15’x26’, and was surrounded in the rich red drape. Red LED uplights painted the walls behind the screens, and the banners were also highlighted with focused lighting.
The second venue was the JW Marriott for the trendy dinner event. The theme in the ballroom was “Nature’s Masterpiece”, and we were asked to recreate the famous Aurora Borealis (aka, the Northern Lights). After a lot of research and equipment testing, we finally settled on a projection approach for this effect, with specially designed gobos shining on white drape throughout the room. Still pictures don’t do this effect justice, as it had a subtle ripple effect to really bring this natural phenomenon to life. The stage was treated with LED uplights that were programmed to create a rainbow on the drape, and the décor in the room by Modern Day Floral perfectly tied it all together.
