This projection mapping installation piece was created for Architecture Week at Soho House Chicago. The collage of moving images on the bookshelves in the Music Room was designed to represent the city’s gridded layout, appear similar to modern architectural layouts, and interact with the objects on the shelves or the physical structure of the projection space.
The piece is inspired by Eric Larson’s, The Devil in the White City. Much like the turn of the century, daring innovation and dark urban issues still exist side-by-side in today’s Chicago. This parallel serves as the conceptual backbone to this projection mapping piece, which portrays Chicago through both magnificent and brooding images of its architectural cityscape today as well as the historic characters Daniel Burnham and H.H. Holmes, re-imagined for this setting.
