The Eden Project in Cornwall is a major tourist attraction in the UK. Each summer, they build a large exhibit in their arena, and host stunning exhibitions. 2018 was no different, and Eden, together with the National Space Centre in Leicester, brought a possible version of a future journey to mars.
The exhibition, consisted of 23 HD screens, throughout the site, some projection, some flatscreens. All linked and synced to a master computer driving the triggering of each screen. The final destination, the planet Mars, was a 18m x 6m wide projection mapped and blended around a 9m geodesic dome. The projections simulated the experience of a huge duststorm on the hostile planet.
The universe cruise consisted of 5 large projected windows looking out accross the universe as the viewer hurtles towards its final destination, Mars. Each room had its own control station, and the actors in each room were able to trigger, reset or trigger an emergency room should it be needed.The landing zone, where you experience what it would be like to make a final descent onto the red planet.
The departure gate, where the synced screens advertise the adventures to be had ahead!
The show ran for 8 weeks over the summer, where AV3 was on standby for technical support should there be any issues, but none arose. The show could cope with 100 visitors every 8 minutes, which reached a huge number over the summer.
