Beam Me Up, Vincent!


Friday afternoon I went to Montreal to finalize a few things for the upcoming Ultra Wide Views 2009 exhibition. First we tested some images on Lighttwist. I did not expect that Vincent would surprise me with the first trial of spherical images. He only asked for one on Thursday. He took us on a very promising tour.

The soundtrack is from Freaked System and can be legally downloaded on Jamendo. I can’t repeat often enough how amazed I am at the quality of the music that can be found on Jamendo.

After putting our feet back on Earth, we walked to nearby École Polytechnique. Benoît Ozell has been very helpful organizing the logistics for LGM and by extension for the exhibition. We looked at some rooms for the Lighttwist projection and settled on… two. Yes, the intention is to have two different projection installations:

  • The initially planned 360° Cyclorama, for which I opened up contributions today – they will be soon visible in the gallery. They will complement videos and potentially even a live performance. 14 FullHD projectors, it’s going to be hot in that room.
  • A high resolution projection of the flat artworks, some of which are also meant to be printed. Most likely four FullHD projectors combined – Sébastien’s ambition is to demonstrate the affordability of Lighttwist over alternatives of similar resolution and wants to connect all those pixels to a single PC.

Things are shaping up very nicely. If you have appropriate material, get yourself an account and start uploading. Be part of this unique, ground-breaking exhibit of Ultra Wide Views.
