Custom Projection Content For Brooklyn's Largest Outdoor Space

Volvox Labs projection mapped Brooklyn's largest outdoor space, The Brooklyn Mirage. The castle-like Williamsburg-club is 80,000-square-foot and holds 6000 visitors. 16 projector were needed to cover all its fortress-like walls. During the summer months, when the club held open, Volvox Labs own VJ was at place to make sure the club-goers were fully immersed in mind-blowing projections.

The amazing custom made visuals lifted the club-experience to the next level, making it not only a great place to enjoy great DJs like Atish, Dubfire, Henrik Schwarz, Adriatique, Frank & Tony and Matthias Meyer, but also a place to enjoy being enveloped in interactive art. The amazing visuals were realizing The Brooklyn Mirage as not only a club, but a destination.

Architecting An Amazing Visual Experience

We had a week! To design entire projection system for the Mirage space. Within this time frame we were able architect a VJ and playback tool and content to fill the entire night of shows. The projection tool communicates between two media servers to trigger different parts of content corresponding to raster maps as well as effects on all sides of the 16-projector mapping.

Raster Maps

Volvox Labs built raster maps for projection mapping to share with all designers when creating content. This streamlined the process and made drag-and-drop of content into our system easy.


"I didn’t think I was in New York. That’s a good thing." - The New York Times "Without a doubt this is the kind of summer venue that New Yorkers have been craving—a slice of tropical paradise coupled with sleek style, stunning views of the Manhattan skyline, and impeccable sound and production to match." - Brooklyn Magazine
