Centennial Spectacle

“100th anniversary of Rice University”

An audio-visual performance within the scope of the 100th anniversary of the William Marsh Rice University in Houston, Texas, USA.

Rice invited URBANSCREEN to stage the Spectacle in its academic quadrangle during its Centennial Celebration. The Spectacle chronicles the university´s history by interpreting different decades and its inspiring story.

With a 270° approach and a persistent length of 240m projection as well as full spatial sound (6.1), it was a great immersive experience and a pleasure for us to mingle with the centennial audience on the campus.

This documentation offers the performance in its original length, from varied perspectives.

Premiered on the 11th October 2012
