Cleveland Botanical Garden Orientation Theater


Client: Cleveland Botanical Garden

To create the entrance to two biomes-one of a Madagascar Spiny Desert and another of a Costa Rican cloud forest-a kinetic video projection system was developed. It uses a helical, leaf-like surface, which slowly revolves through intersecting images from multiple sources spaced around the theater. Theatrical lighting and eight channels of surround sound complete the environment. Still images morph from one to another.

  • The video and lighting systems are all controlled by automatic show control systems that shut down during off hours to preserve energy.
