This sort of projection presented plenty of challenges when attempted on simple modern structures, but Hwaseong Fortress is an elaborate and complex 18th-century building with curved walls and delicately formed features.
Since Suwon Hwaseong Fortress is located in a residential area, the team was concerned about generating noise that will spread.
Also, since the show made use of Hwaseong Fortress, which is a UNESCO World Heritage, there were concerns about damaging the site.
Additionally, due to Covid-19, social distancing, measures such as restricted seating arrangements and gate sterilisers had to be put into place.
Seeking to wrap their projections around the mixture of straight and curved lines that formed the west gate of the fortress, the team turned to disguise’s Designer software. disguise’s flexibility meant their 4x4pro media servers with six DVI outputs had no difficulty working with third-party projectors from Barco in order to realise the vision of the projection.
This meant that although the building was a complex shape, with projections twisting around curved corners and even stretching onto the angled, tiled roof, the projected content was seamless from end to end, with no elements distorted by the building’s features.
