Amos Rex, Helsinki

Exploring the vibrant, multi-layered and immersive exhibits within Helsinki’s recently opened Amos Rex private art museum is a simultaneously powerful and calming experience.

When visitors make their way through Massless – the first exhibition to grace the unique underground spaces – they are engulfed by glorious projection mapping and soundscapes as they become hypnotised by an iridescent wave of water particles and interact with surfaces that explode with colour.

The huge immersive installations and seamless imagery were realised due to mapping wizardry achieved using 118 Epson projectors, with a further 17 projecting signage and educational information in the reception area and outside the entrance to the main exhibition area. Epson’s 3LCD projectors are peppered throughout the installations, chosen for the brightness, contrast and colour reproduction they brought to the technically challenging project.

Heightening the sonic experience
Each of the visually stunning artworks was accompanied by an atmospheric soundscape to match. To enhance the visitor experience and fit in with the museum’s subtle approach to tech integration, Genelec’s 8350, 8340, 8330 and 8320 SAM speakers and 7050 and 7060 active subwoofers which were hidden in the ceiling structure
