Stewart Filmscreen's Silver 5D is chosen for art installation

Stewart Filmscreen Corporation® is announcing its participation in the RealTime UnReal installation commissioned by the Museum of the Moving Image. The exhibit, RealTime UnReal, designed by Thomas Soetens and Kora Van den Bulcke of Workspace Unlimited, utilizes Stewart Filmscreen's Silver 5D material to demonstrate the pinnacle of modern 3D i capabilities. The installation addresses the fusion of physical and digital space, employing 2 stereoscopic projections on a double-sided projection screen and game engine software customized by the artists, capturing visitors in the physical space and displaying them in an imaginary world. The virtual world seems to occupy physical space like a sculpture in the museum, an alternate reality floating in midair. Walking around the virtual world alters its viewpoint, reveals impossible perspectives and simultaneous occurrences, and disrupts its architecture. Realtime Unreal challenges visitors to bridge the gap between what their eyes perceive and what their minds believe is unreal. "Stewart Filmscreen's Silver 5D screen was a essential component to the exhibit due to its wider viewing cone and increased center to edge brightness uniformity," stated Thomas Soetens, Director/Leading Artist of Workspace Unlimited. "The RealTime UnReal exhibit is an immersive, interactive display that encourages visitors to walk around the screen making the ability to have 3D off-axis viewing a necessity for the success of the project."
