Explora, immersion au Château Royal de Collioure

Research board and initial tests

Production and installation

After the spotlight on Jardins enluminés for the Palais des Rois de Majorque, the department of Pyrénées-Orientales entrusted us with the mission of creating an immersive room at the Château Royal de Collioure. A new space inviting visitors to travel through time visitors to rediscover the rich history.
It is the technique of animated video mapping that was chosen to illustrate the walls of the room. It’s again the duo of directors Maud Sertour and Samy Barras who produced the animated show.
The sound and visual experience allows you to discover the Catalan palace from the Middle Ages to today. This new mediation tool will support mediators in their work with the public by offering a visual support to suggest spaces inaccessible to the general public.
This experience has been accessible since June 2023.
