A major fashion exhibit at London’s Victoria and Albert Museum (V&A) has used four pairs of F32 projectors from projectiondesign to create impressive images around the museum.
The projectors are being used as part of the Ballgowns: British Glamour Since 1950 exhibition, in which 60 of the most impressive and interesting gowns from the latter half of the twentieth century are displayed.
The design and development of the system was done by Sysco, aided in the implementation and set up by Electrosonic.
The exhibition is arranged over two levels of the museum, within a domed space with four alcoves leading off it. The projections have had to be arranged to display quality images on the curved surfaces of the dome, and have been vertically stacked with significant edge blending used.
The projectors have been placed on the upper level of the display and have been housed in special casings that have been designed to be unobtrusive within the exhibition, but precisely functional, with perforations for ventilation purposes.
The gowns in the exhibition come from the V&A’s impressive collection of modern fashions, including designs from luminaries like Norman Hartnell, Victor Stiebel, Zandra Rhodes, Catherine Walker, Jonathan Saunders and Hussein Chalayan.
