Eminent UK-based projector technologist company, The Projection Studio, has created an enormous video projection shop for the ‘Winter In Venice’ Festival at Las Vegas’s Venetian resort.
The Projection Studio – led by Ross Ashton – designed an enormous show using a 25 metre by 25 metre projector screen on the frontage of the Venetian. The images included in the show feature many of Venice’s most memorable locations and attractions, including a full scale replica of the Clock Tower from St Mark’s square in Venice.
Mr Ashton had initially been asked to consult on the technical installation of the projections and produce the artwork, but was subsequently taken on to take control of the whole event.
The show features a year in Venice, centred around Amadora, a character from Italian folklore, who has been adopted by the Venetian as the main symbol of their winter festival. The projection show is all set to a reworking of The Four Seasons suite by Vivaldi, which has been created by British sound artist, Karen Monid.
The imaging for the show was created by Ashton through work with two other designers, Nils Porrmann and Sang Gun Kim, while Ashton carried out all the storyboarding for the show on his own.
