Temple of Light delights with multi-sensory experience
Shanghai: Temple of Light is a digital art exhibition pioneer on a mission to change perceptions and captivate audiences. Using the latest multi-display and projection technology, they recreate paintings on a gigantic scale, challenging the traditional way of viewing art in museums and creating a multi-sensory, immersive experience.
INSIDE by Temple of Light and Danny Rose Studio opened its doors in December 2021 in a huge metal-clad box on the North Bund in Shanghai. The initial idea was a "pop-up" exhibition with a planned seven-week run, but that was quickly extended by popular demand to September 30, 2022, with a new exhibition scheduled to follow.
It's easy to see why the attraction has been so widely appreciated. INSIDE by Temple of Light and Danny Rose Studio delivers a fully immersive experience using Dataton WATCHOUT for show composition and synchronized playback across an array of 32 Epson 3LCD projectors, and a Meyer Sound spatialized audio system. Within the image-filled, 600 square-meter space in Shanghai, visitors are able to wander with lifelike visuals across the venue with dynamic sound.
Immersive concept by multi-cultural company
Based in Shanghai, Temple of Light is both an immersive exhibition concept and a multi-cultural company. The content for the Shanghai exhibition was created by the internationally acclaimed, award-winning Danny Rose creative studio.
Audiences can experience two narratives at the Shanghai venue: “UKIYO-E VISIONS” and “MUTATION”. UKIYO-E VISIONS takes the viewer on a contemplative journey into the masterpieces of Ukiyo-e Japanese prints from the 17th to 19th century, providing a glimpse of the great diversity, richness, and modernity of these works. MUTATION is a sensorial dive into the plastic and harmonious structures of matter –"a head-spinning visual overload" according to Time-Out Shanghai!
WATCHOUT behind the scenes
Dataton's premium partner in China, Shanghai Lefedv Showtech cooperated with the exhibition creators during the installation, supplying both WATCHOUT multi-display software and media servers.
“It is always exciting to see a project develop from idea to reality,” commented Ashok Sharma, Dataton’s regional sales manager, APAC. “Even at the initial meeting during InfoComm China where we brought all partners together, we knew that the project would be a success. All the key components lined up – outstanding concept and content, great teamwork and strong local support! Congratulations to all involved.”
