Wrap around projection mapping visuals for Lydia Place Fundraiser

Lydia Place is an exceptional organization providing emergency and transitional housing for women in the Whatcom County and greater Bellingham, WA area.

Sensebellum is proud to have partnered with Lydia Place once again this year for their "Hearts for Housing Gala and Auction Fundraiser" to provide a mix of lighting and projection mapping activations that really transformed the space to another level visually.

This year visuals were crafted from hand to match the "Love Boat" theme and were then projected across 200' of wall space in the main hall. Add to this the mix of 3 lobby projection installations and a really enticing moving head light display on the red carpet and the night was a hit.

SPIE PRISM Awards 2017 stage design and projection mapping

SPIE is an amazing company based out of Bellingham, WA specializing as a major media conglomerate for the photonics and optics industry.

One of the key events each year is Photonics West, a gathering in San Francisco, CA of many different companies in this technical world. Within that week there is the PRISM Awards; essentially an Oscars for engineers.

Sensebellum has been working with SPIE on the stage design for the past two years using a mix of the classic CUBIX Modular Staging System as well as a host of other lighting, video, and projection mapping compliments.

This was an exceptional year and to share the highlights there are a few pictures that capture the entire set of 96 cubes in all of their glory!

Gooey projection mapping and lighting for Zumiez's Best Foot Forward Skateboard Finals

Zumiez is a staple in the realm of action sports clothing outlets. Headquartered in Lynwood, Washington, the creative company asked Sensebellum to come up with a few projection mapping and lighting activations for the final stop in the 2017 Best Foot Forward Skateboard contest series.

The headquarters' campus consists of a large grey building without a lot of street lights that is easily viewable from the whole grounds: perfect. Next add a few pieces from the Arborealis Tree Lighting System and the entire space comes alive as thousands of people pour into the campus to watch some incredible up and coming skateboarders rip the course day and night.

And as the Pacific Northwest would have it - the rains opened up. And that is why Sensebellum is always ready for every weather condition with projectors, lighting fixtures, and all the core components weatherized and ready for rain, sleet, hail, and snow.

Historic projection mapping for Star Wars themed Orchestra at Spokane's Fox Theater

When you first step inside of the Fox Theater in Spokane the inner beauty is immediately present. The ceiling is full of art deco architectural themes from the 30's and offers a great set of features for projection mapping to take root on.

This winter the creative directors at the Fox reached out to Sensebellum to see about some projection mapping, as a first in the venue, for a special Star Wars themed symphony to be played in early February.

After previewing the space the planets aligned and a star of a show was brewing. A complete 3D model was made of the venue followed by custom tailed visuals and video clips set to every piece the musicians played. It was pure audio visual revelry.

The Sensebellum process is flexible enough to accommodate an amazing array of spaces and and event types. If you are looking to take the visual elements of your show to the next level then take a look at the full show here or head over the the contact page and get in touch!

Creative tree lighting turns interactive at Seattle Art Museum's "SAM Lights"

The Arborealis Tree Lighting System is flexible enough to be deployed in many parks, gardens, and environments. When the Seattle Art Museum (SAM) asked Sensebellum to design an experience for SAM Lights 2017 that activated the trees, elicited a sense of scale, and was fun for all ages there was indeed a few good solutions to this creative challenge...

Immediately the Arborealis, with it's over 120 digital LED light fixtures, came into focus as a unique approach to this creative challenge.

By creating a topographic map of the park, complete with buttons representing clusters of lights and projection mapping over the top to show the interactions, an installation was introduced that combined the true essence of Sensebellum with the terrain of the park.

Each button represented a cluster of trees. When pressed, both a sound and a lighting pattern were triggered that rippled throughout the landscape. Press a few more, grab a friend, meet a new one, and soon a collaborative multi-sensory jam session was on!

It was very rewarding to see people from all walks and ages participate in this experience, share tips, spark ideas, and work together to discover out how it all worked on the inside.

If you are looking for some interesting lighting for your next gathering than we would love to help make it amazing!

Projection Mapping on Geology at Famous Rock Climbing Feature

Rock climbing and projection mapping go together like orange juice and waffles. It's a great combo that you wouldn't expect but awesome in every way.

Here are a few shots from a recent trip to the Feathers at the Frenchman Coulee near Vantage, WA with Endless Film Production and Mountainmind

Outdoors and off grid can make for a challenge but this combo of projected light and a clear sky with climbers "climbing on" in the distance was a perfect backdrop for some fun with mapping and geology.

Capitol Hill Block Party 2017 Urban Seattle Projection Mapping

The annual Capitol Hill Block Party is a supreme way to spend some of the most beautiful summer days in Seattle. Sensebellum brings to the table a unique mix of projection mapping, custom 3D visual content, live video mixing, and integration of real time video beamed from the main stage and onto the urban architecture in precise and mind blowing ways.

This all comes to life for 3 days on multiple buildings and multiple stories surrounding the main stage. 15,000 people all gather to listen and see the action. However, the streets make for a long corridor that strains visibility after some distance. By leveraging the projection mapping and live video we can create a new way to visually enjoy the concert even if you are a 1/4 mile away, in the beer garden, or just relaxing outside of the main pit.

Either way, it is always a hit and it is a great time working with such a professional team to provide a useful mix of what it is we do best. Read the full write up on the CHBP project in the portfolio here.
