Museum projections show Arctic climate crisis

The Arctic – while the ice is melting – is an exhibition at the Nordic Museum in Stockholm, Sweden which uses 25 Optoma pro-AV projectors to show the changing face of the Arctic region.

Museum projections show Arctic climate crisis

This spring, integrator Kreativ Teknik won a contract to provide a visual solution for a new exhibition, The Arctic – while the ice is melting, at the Nordic Museum in Stockholm, Sweden.

As visitors enter a magnificent hall which is over 20 metres high, two 10,000 lumen Optoma ZU1050 laser projectors – powered by a pair of BrightSign players, illuminate a pair of iceberg facades with stylised moving images of cascading ice on each side of the cracks.

Visitors can continue the journey by entering the iceberg to discover multifaceted stories about the history and future of the Arctic, and about the people who call it their home. The stories are told through a collection of contemporary films from the Arctic, and are fed from a computer with nine outputs running Arkaos Mediamaster PRO to nine Optoma ZU500TST projectors.

There is a crevice, where ice is projected from a Datatron Watchout to two ZU500TSTs onto the curved wall, giving the feeling of being in an igloo.

To complete the adventure and discovery of life in the Arctic, the pièce de résistance calls visitors to gaze up at the northern sky. Twelve Optoma ZU750 projectors point upwards onto the curved ceiling.

Jesper Wachtmeister of Solaris Filmproduktion created the projections, which build primarily on the Nordic Museum’s collection of contemporary photos and films, and feature stunning photography of the aurora borealis.

The ceiling allows gazers to take a seat and experience the changing world.
