Vietnam Van Gogh exhibition uses VIOSO-powered immersive installations

Twenty-five cameras, nine servers, 70 projectors and a range of AV technologies are being used to bring the art of Van Gogh to life in Ho Chi Minh City, Vietnam.

Set across 3,800sq m of exhibition space at the Gigamall shopping centre in Ho Chi Minh City, the Van Gogh Art Lighting Experience uses technologies including projection mapping, virtual reality and 3D audio to explore the career of Vincent Van Gogh, who is represented by more than 900 works on virtual display.

The exhibition uses camera-based auto-alignment technology from Dusseldorf-based company VIOSO, and the VIOSO team designed and calibrated the multi-projector set-up.

Highlights include the Vincent’s Soul installation, which uses large-scale video mapping to fully immerse visitors in the Dutch master’s art. This area is equipped with 70 projectors – calibrated using VIOSO6 software and dozens of calibration cameras, which are used to create an immersive room with artworks mapped across 360° on the walls and floor. In the Vincent’s Land area, the VIOSO team helped project Van Gogh’s works onto a 3D sculpture of the man himself.

“Here are the rooms. I want to put video content everywhere – how should we proceed?” was the brief received from the client, said Etienne Servant, VIOSO’s senior AV project manager.

“I handled the planning and design of the installation, including the lay-out of the projectors and cameras, media servers and signal distribution, and provided the technical lay-outs to the exhibition for the installation. We then had to calibrate the projectors to achieve a seamless, perfectly warped and blended image stretching out across the full space and transferring knowledge to the client.”
