Combining history with a dynamic visual and interactive display to bring out the flavours of wine
The Cite du Vin in Bordeaux was another successful collaboration with designers Casson Mann. Our three exhibits now make up part of the permanent display enjoyed by an international audience at the museum.
Working alongside Paris based production company A Propos, Squint/Opera were tasked to produce three dialogues, each exploring a different theme: the service of wine through history, wine in varied social and cultural environments and the close links between wine and French gastronomy.
The installation consists of a complex projection mapping display showcasing three large tables laid with 2D and 3D props onto which six minute animations are projected. The multilayered 'magic mirror' animation was on the theme of wine and memory, illustrating childhood memories from writers, and an integrated camera in the frame allows the visitor to catch a glimpse of themselves in a dreamlike setting.
