Fulldome.pro has completed yet another immersive art exhibition “Lightning of the Soul”. This exhibition showcased the works of the late Thai artist, sculptor, and architect – Thawan Duchanee.
Exhibition: The beginning
The project began when the Fulldome.pro team travelled to Chaing Rai to meet with the artist’s son, Doytibet Duchanee, at Baan Dam (the Black House) a museum and tourist attraction that was his father’s life’s work. Doytibet wanted to show his father’s work in a new and exciting way and to take it beyond Baan Dam and Chiang Rai. Over several years of discussions and planning the project was realized in late 2020.
The first immersive exhibition in Thailand
The exhibition debuted at the ICONSIAM centre on the banks of Bangkok’s Chao Phraya river. It consisted of two sites. The first – promotional part – was installed inside the shopping centre on the first floor. The main exhibition was on the second-floor terrace, overlooking the river.
This exhibition is another example of how Fulldome.pro offers a full-service experience from dome engineering and projection systems, to content creation, exhibition design, mobile applications with social media interaction, soft furnishings, and event management.
Let’s have a closer look at the exhibition’s sites:
The larger, 14-meter, dome featured a specially created immersive show using Duchanee’s artwork. The Fulldome.pro creative team worked closely with Doytibet to digitize his father’s works and incorporate them into a modern, animated work, presenting them in a new way, while maintaining the integrity and vision of the original pieces.
Overwhelming success of the exhibition
In the month the exhibition was installed, thousands of visitors got to experience the work of one of Thailand’s most renowned artists in a new way, all while maintaining the social distancing and safety requirements imposed during these trying times.
