Sheikh Zayed’s Charitable Work
Development of the backend system for the immersive experience. Technical execution.
Our second collaboration with kanvas was a new challenge. This time we worked with Maisoon Al Saleh, a local painter and visual artist. We wanted to realise her art and painting series titled Sheikh Zayed's Charitable Work.
To depict this contemporary yet historical theme, we decided to create a virtual environment in which we could implement the paintings in a digital format. We used the Unreal Engine to create the virtual space where we placed monoliths with mirrored surfaces. In the centre of the room we placed a water feature which, in combination with the desert theme, creates an oasis-like atmosphere. Our software was developed in such a way that all paintings are displayed in a looping animation by panning the camera. We managed to optimize the software to run at 10700 x 1200 resolution in real time at over 30 frames per second.
