After months of preparation, we’re delighted to say that the interactive digital experience “ONE Vision” opened on Sunday morning in Lexington, Kentucky.

Noho, in partnership with Lotus Media, created all content for this 10,000 sq. ft. experience. It includes huge cinema-like video projections, interactive touchscreens and react tables, an immersive video cave, a 360-degree video projection sphere, a debating chamber with six characters, and an ambient infinity walk.

Part of “ONE: The Alltech Ideas Conference”, ONE Vision showcases Alltech’s vision of the future, where technology and science have aligned to produce nutritious food for 9 billion people.

The experience previewed over the weekend to rave reviews and we’re delighted to say that visitor reaction since then has been fantastic.

National Library of Ireland 1916 website

An exciting 1916 project we’ve recently completed, is an update of the National Library of Ireland’s online exhibition, “Ireland: 1916/2016”. In partnership with Tandem Design, Noho were commissioned to completely revise and update this extensive online resource.

The exhibition makes great use of the NLI’s vast collection of memorabilia from the era; books, newspapers, drawings, photographs and proclamations. A brilliant site for any history buff, it’s  also a fantastic resource for keeping up to date with the library’s four exhibitions devoted to 1916.

There are descriptions of each exhibition and a calendar detailing with the wide range of talks and events taking place over the next few months. The site also provides a digital collection of the seven signatories; the men behind the Rising.

Key parts of the project included ensuring that the new site featured a responsive design – users can view the new site on a wide range of mobile devices – and adding an option to browse the site in Irish, an achievement which Padraig Pearse would no doubt have approved!

Proclaiming a Republic: The 1916 Rising launches in Collins Barracks

Filming interview with the NMI’s Project Manager, Dara Carroll

Happy Spring! It’s a symbolic time of year, of new beginnings and exciting ventures, and here at Noho we’ve embraced this mind-set! We have a number of fantastic projects under way, many of which relate to the current 1916 centenary commemorations.

One of the largest of these is the National Museum of Ireland’s Proclaiming a Republic: The 1916 Rising exhibition, which opened recently at Collins Barracks. Working closely with Tandem Design, Noho provided a range of AV content for this exhibition including interactive touchscreens, projections and short films.

The NMI has always had a strong connection with the Rising; having staged exhibitions for its twenty fifth (1941) and fiftieth (1966) anniversaries. Proclaiming a Republic.

The exhibition provides an in depth and poignant look into the momentous events of that Easter Week, telling the story through an impressive collection of artefacts and personal accounts drawn from its Decorative Arts and History branch. As Hugh Linehan of The Irish Times recently pointed out, the exhibition contains some of ‘the most significant artefacts’ from 1916.

A highlight for us was filming interviews with key figures from the Museum, including the exhibition’s Curator, Sandra Heise and Director, Raghnall Ó Floinn. These interviews gave great insight into the work involved in choosing artefacts and setting up the exhibition.

Working on the final projection at the end of the exhibition was another highlight – it blends current news headlines with excerpts from the Proclamation, drawing parallels between the aspirations of the signatories and life in modern Ireland.

The exhibition is staged in the Riding Room in Collins Barracks and runs indefinitely. If you’re looking for a comprehensive overview of the Rising, illustrated with evocative objects including the Proclamation and the Irish flag, we highly recommend a visit!
