Immersive technology artists Lumen & Forge recently completed a magical holiday experience for the Streetmosphere at the Grand Canal Shoppes inside the Venetian Resort Las Vegas. The 17-minute projection mapping show, “Holiday Spectacular” is displayed in front of the St. Mark’s Square Clock Tower with custom animated content/
“We love holiday activations. Illuminating the St. Mark’s Square Clock Tower at Grand Canal Shoppes was an exciting project,” says Palmer Nicklas, Creative Director of Lumen & Forge. “We partnered with BESTAgency to produce ‘Holiday Spectacular,’ using projection mapping to augment the architecture with custom video effects that leave guests in awe and in the holiday spirit.”
Lumen & Forge worked with Christie Digital, using a 30K lumen Christie Boxer 4K30 projector and custom media server to animate the clock tower for an immersive guest experience. The show whisks guests away on a wintery 3D journey to an Italian “Vacanze” holiday using lights and sounds all ages can enjoy.
“Projection mapping is one of our specialties, an intersection of art and technology on a grand canvas with infinite pixels It can turn any surface into a moving digital canvas and transport guests to anywhere imaginable,” says Chris Butcher, Senior Animator of Lumen & Forge. “Taking objects or architectural items such as the Clock Tower at Grand Canal Shoppes and transforming them into festive fantasies is enchanting. It’s a great medium to engage audiences and create a unique experience.”
