A light installation in the Spanish city called Ignis Fatuus used eight Vivitek D5110 projectors to commemorate the Roman history of the city.
Barcelona was founded by the Romans as Barcino, with the city celebrating its heritage every single year with a light festival called LLUM BCN.
Ignis Fatuus was designed by Slidemedia Laboratory, a multidisciplinary group of artists who use audio-visual technology as their creative medium.
The installation was situated outside in an open space below ground level and gave viewers a multimedia light show using historical Roman remains as a structural backdrop.
Fausto Morales Gil of Slidemedia says of the use of Vivitek projectors: “When we were developing the ideas that would become Ignis Fatuus we knew we would need a projector that could perform well in demanding conditions.
“Firstly the installation was outdoors and also we wanted to create dramatic effects to evoke the the historical Roman themes of the show. With its high brightness and excellent resolution, the Vivitek was the the perfect model for this striking visual installation.”
The projectors were dotted around the perimeter of the exhibition space and MediaFlow software was used to produce the images on display.
Ignis Fatuus was performed on February 6, 7 and 8 2015.
