7thSense Design recently supported a celebration of subterranean karst cave systems in the iconic Museum Building at the heart of Dublin’s Trinity College earlier this year.
The event, Inception Horizon, took the audience on a sensory journey deep underground, following the flow of water through song, sculpture, visual projections and spoken word, also featuring the world premiere of the choral piece Inception Horizon by composer Norah Constance Walsh, performed by the Mellow Tonics choir.
Laurence Gill, Professor in Environmental Engineering in the School of Engineering at Trinity College Dublin, was the driving force of the event.
Behind the on-stage choir, visuals designed by Dara Ní Bheacháin, were projected onto the internal wall using two 7thSense Pico media servers and four Panasonic PT-RZ660BEJ projectors. The installation was configured as two banks of two projectors spaced 30 meters apart across the hall. Each Pico media server was integrated locally to the projectors, with a network cable connecting each of the server banks for synchronization.
Speaking about the special event, Dr Fergus Mc Auliffe, Communications and Engagement Manager at iCRAG (Irish Centre for Research in Applied Geosciences) said, “Producing Inception Horizon was allowed us to explore our science in a highly sensory way. The acoustics of the building were perfect for imitating a cavernous underground landscape, and the richness of the choral song was emphasized by the stunning visualizations projected on the building walls overhead by the 7thSense team. It was truly a feast for the senses.”
A powerful media server in compact form, Pico is ideal for wall displays, mobile installations, and multiple and small-scale installations. As a versatile alternative to large centralized servers, Pico can be mounted locally without the need for extensive wiring or rack space which made it well suited to the Inception Horizon installation.
Stone sculptor Helen O’Connell produced limestone sculptures for, and spoke at, the event. Other spoken word performers included John Walsh, David Drew and Paul Johnston. Event sponsors were iCRAG and TCD Visual & Performing Arts Fund.
