Picasso 1936

Graphic design, mapping. | Picasso Museum | Barcelona | 2011

MID (Media Interactive Design) comissioned us to create a projection mapping to illustrate relationships between several documents that accredited the firs exhibitiiion of Picasso artwork, made in Spain in 1936, just befor the Civil War. The project, comissioned by the Barcelona’s Picasso Museum, involved a huge research in the field of complexity visualization, as there was lots of relationships that had to be made visible using a simple graphic language.


Here you have some of the results of this research process, as digital images:


And from here on, some photos showing this graphics projected with a dual-projector setup. Note that all documents are sticked in the wall, and video is projection-mapped on them:


In addition to that, the Picasso Museum also comissioned Playmodes to create the overall exhibition graphic design, ranging from posters and flyers to web communication:
