Together with BARTKRESA studio, Panasonic System Solutions Company of North America will unveil the studio’s newest projection-mapped sculpture, Sviatovid, from June 12-14 at InfoComm 2019. The 15- foot tall, multifaceted sculpture will be brought to life using four Panasonic PT-RQ32KU 3-Chip DLP® SOLID SHINE 4K+, 27,000lm (center), 26,000lm laser projectors to illuminate the 360-degree showpiece.
Inspired by both a ninth century Slavic deity and a medieval sculpture of the same name, Sviatovid’s history is the subject of debate among historians, but BARTKRESA studio took inspiration from the all-seeing nature of the figure. With four faces, Sviatovid was not omniscient, but could literally take in the word in an all-encompassing way. The studio designed a library of interactive animations to be a reflection of Sviatovid’s distinct perspective and journey.
“The high-level of design and production that we have achieved with Sviatovid – high brightness and superior picture quality, color saturation, dependability and a complete transformation of the sculpture – is something truly innovative and exciting,” said Bart Kresa, master projection designer and founder of BARTKRESA studio. “We are grateful for the opportunity to collaborate with Panasonic and thank them for their dedicated project team that worked with us. They focused on evolving the technology while we focused on evolving the design.”
“Sviatovid is yet another very unique project we’ve had the pleasure of working with Bart on, so we are excited he’s chosen InfoComm for its U.S. debut,” said John Baisley, senior vice president, Professional Imaging & Visual Systems, Panasonic System Solutions Company of North America. “These PT-RQ32KU 4K+ laser projectors provide the high-brightness and exceptional resolution needed to project on this intricate 3-D sculpture which will provide a stunning visual at the show.”
Sviatovid will be on display outside Hall E of the West Building at the Orange County Convention Center from June 12-14. In addition to exhibiting Sviatovid, Bart Kresa will give presentations on the art of projection mapping during the conference, as well as presenting at the TIDE Summit.
Panasonic will be available at Booth #1300 to discuss its partnership with BARTKRESA studio as well as its new and innovative AV solutions. For more information about Panasonic Professional Imaging & Visual Systems, please visithttps://na.panasonic.com/us/audio-video-solutions.
