Play Beyond Play: Game Portal

The Museum of Technology Stockholm

The story behind

Play Beyond Play is a permanent exhibition at the Museum of Technology in Stockholm. We created the exhibition graphics including the immersive game experience »Game Portal«. We based the experience on twelve computer games in four categories: Vector, Pixel, Polygon and Naturalistic. To enhance the immersive experience, we choose to work with projection mapping on custom made walls based on the idea of the »accordion«.

We made a storyboard divided into twelve units of fifteen seconds each and selected sequences from the different games. The take-outs had to be unedited for various reasons, and the resolution was too low to cover the whole room. To solve this, we projected the sequences on the flat part of the wall and made a graphic, animated interpretation of each game covering the rest of the room. We made all the animations in After Effects, projection mapping in collaboration with Joel Dittrich and storyboard and music in collaboration with the client.
