The Museum is part of the Colossal Megastructure below, the recently opened Marina Bay Sands Resort (which was featured on National Geographic’s “Megastructures” TV show), that has now transformed the skyline of Singapore. The $6 billion resort houses the largest Casino in the world, and is made of three 55 story hotel towers and a cantilevered roof deck that connects all 3 buildings:
The rooftop "Skypark" has the longest infinity pool in the world (that would outstretch the Eiffel Tower if it was laid down!):
Here is the first day of pre-install where we're aligning the four projector streams with the screens and figuring out frame rates, compression schemes, etc… to optimize the viewing experience. Shown below with client Mark Hayward of Idea Monkey, Inc., the Museum's producer.
Voila! The film is complete. It was created utilizing hundreds of layers of After Effects animation incorporating thousands of archival images & video, and is displayed on 4 High Definition screens. All 4 screens rotate in sync so the film had to be rendered at almost 8k resolution (all 4 screens simultaneously) to give a truly 3D feel to the experience in the gallery:
The film profiles famous Artists and Inventors throughout history who have incorporated Science into their work, and Scientists whose inventions are a Work of Art!
