Holo-Gauze has been instrumental in helping Realtime Environmental Systems (RES) and creative director Liam Tomaszewski to realise superstar DJ Eric Prydz’s holographically-enhanced performance for his EPIC 5.0 show, debuting at London’s Victoria Park in front of an audience of 15,000.
Projected onto a huge, highly transparent and reflective 20 m x 9 m Holo-Gauze screen, mind-bending animations – including a giant astronaut – created the “biggest hologram in the world”, according to Prydz. The output from four Panasonic RZ31K 30,000 lumen laser projectors were merged together, beaming a single image of creative director and VJ Liam Tomaszewski’s optical illusions onto the Holo-Gauze screen.
In addition to the Holo-Gauze screen, a V-shaped 2304 x 576-pixel LED display was positioned on the back wall of the stage, with a second V-shaped display (the ‘Vanish’) forming an animation-rich cube around Prydz. Pixels on the front display were designed to allow the audience to see Prydz through the animations when he was lit.
“I was absolutely delighted when RES again asked us to help with Eric’s latest EPIC show,” says Holo-Gauze inventor and Holotronica owner/CEO Stuart Warren-Hill. “Holo-Gauze is ideal for live events such as this, allowing live performers to be situated behind our near-invisible gauze while visually stunning holographic effects appear to float in front of them. Holo-Gauze makes the seemingly impossible possible.”
