A screen-friendly version of our 5000 pixel-wide moving painting for the National Maritime Museum's amazing exhibition: Royal River, Power, Pageantry and the Thames. The looping animation adorned 4-screens above the museum's reception desk, and was visited by the Queen in April 2012! We like to think she stood awhile and reflected on the mastery of our digital trickery…. but we can't be sure.
We turned a Canaletto painting (London: The Thames on Lord Mayor’s Day, looking towards the City and St. Paul’s Cathedral - circa 1750) in to a 3D environment. The water ripples, canons fire and flags billow in a truly immersive experience. The painting itself is on loan to the National Maritime Museum and is in England for the first time since it was painted, over 260 years ago!
