Inuit Rights

Visitor watching Inuit Rights projection

This experience immerses the visitor in the environment of Canada’s Inuit people. An editable projection mask displays an ambient film of Inuit Sled dog teams running through the Arctic. A kinect sensor mounted in the space recognizes when visitors enter the niche, and triggers a transition – the ambient sled dog film projected on the rear wall slowly fades as short dual-language documentary films are precisely projected onto the dome in the center of the niche.

Upswell created software tools that allowed for ultimate control over projection mapping, enabling the creative team to achieve the desired look and feel of the space’s multiple projections, and therefore, create a seamlessly immersive experience for visitors

Visitors are immersed in arctic landscapes and the fading traditions of the Inuit peoples.
