Jeffrey Blondes Exhibit at Mettivier Gallery,  TorontoDigital Art

Recently, when I had some downtime before a reception, I browsed for a while at Toronto's Nicholas Metivier Gallery. It was immediately clear to me how this artistic work could be used by event planners to create the right ambiance or reflect a specific theme. The exhibit called Times and Tides featured the art of Jeffrey Blondes. It consisted of picture frames on both side so the wall and videos of a variety of environments inside the frames.

You can see a number of  Jeffrey Blondes' films that werewith in the frames here. Here is an example of one of them.

Rear-projected Tiled Digital Wall Displays

Rear-projected tiled digital wall displays are another example of how technology can transform event venues. Technology options include flat LCD panels and digital light processing (DLP). Here is an example of the use of this technology by Christie Microtiles.
