The Brief

The project is for an installation in the Guinness storehouse museum. It will consist of a map made up of 3x7 high screens that displays messages posted from inside the Guinness storehouse and moderated posts from outside.

The idea is that posts appear in a queue on each side of the map and at set intervals it will go into journey mode and scroll and zoom into the map to drop off posts into countries.

The Development

We worked with the client to build the most cost effective solution for their requirements. We realised a hardware configuration which allowed all 21 screens to be driven by a single PC.

As more visual effects were added, we were careful to ensure that performance was never compromised. The final installation runs on a single canvas of 7560x1920 at 60FPS.

The Results

The exhibit went live over the summer of 2012 and has been enjoyed by hundreds of visitors every day since then. If you're ever at the Storehouse, drop in and see it for yourself.
