Antarctica - WHILE YOU WERE SLEEPING


A Joseph Michael project, Nocturnal worked alongside a small collective of artists to create this epic installation.

Antarctica - while you were sleeping is an encompassing international installation celebrating the pristine scenery of Antarctica. The work is a cinematic collision of nature and architecture, wherein Michael’s majestic imagery of Antarctic icebergs are projection-mapped onto significant buildings across the globe

The world premier of Antarctica - while you were sleeping was held over 3 nights in March 2017 on Auckland’s historic War Memorial Museum.

We used d3 media server to deliver the project, which allowed us to continue our 3d workflow from the studio to the museum.
