Christie Q-Series projectors perform at the heart of Arup’s winning audio-visual sculpture

Posted 8/4/2016

Wokingham, UK – (August 4, 2016) – A quartet of Christie® Q Series projectors have enabled a stunning ‘talking sculpture’ to be realized as part of a winning design installation at global engineering firm Arup that incorporated AV as a dynamic element. ‘Heart of Arup’ by DaeWha Kang Design – 2016’s successful entry of the annual ‘No.8@Arup’ competition – is a unique structure which incorporates Arup’s digital social network stream into a creative audio-visual installation. Christie’s Q-Series projectors are utilized to project multiple social media posts from Arup’s Yammer stream onto cable-suspended acrylic ‘leaves’ of the sculpture, which has been installed at the company’s spacious atrium area in London. This innovative concept takes the digital thoughts, expertise and insights of Arup employees from the virtual world and brings them into a visible reality.

The installation – located at No.8 Fitzroy Street – can be seen from an array of public spaces and working areas within the building, and it reflects the many daily interactions taking place between the company’s offices around the ​world in an engaging and accessible format. With best-in-class brightness, Christie’s Q Series projectors are able to tackle the atrium’s challenging environment – a light, spacious and airy space – and deliver precise clarity and vivid colors. As the industry’s highest quality dual-lamp 1DLP® projection solution, the Q Series combines versatility, affordability and performance, making it an ideal for this application. Their ultra-quiet operation, low profile design and excellent reliability also ensure the focus remains solely on the installation’s appealing aesthetic.
