Five plus two amazing artworks on two spectacular buildings in Qatar: the Ministry of Interior and the National Archive. 205 people worked on the study, preparation, and execution of the project. A wide variety of video artists, video programmers, IT specialists, audio specialists, and production people worked for 2 months to make this fantastic production happen. The Ministry of Interior projection mapping installation consisted of 40 latest generation 32k and 40k lumen 4K resolution projectors. This created a total of 14080000 lux. The total addressable pixel resolution of the installation was a whopping 369 million pixels! To ensure the best possible experience, the audio system had to be the best. 5 LA acoustics line array systems produced more than 120dB at a distance of 200 meters and crossing the busy street in front of the Ministry. The NA projection mapping installation consisted of 30 latest generation 35k lumen 4K resolution projectors, while for the audio, 2LA acoustics line array systems produced more than 120dB at a distance of 120 meters. To have the best possible redundant system, all projectors were installed in air-conditioned projection containers. To ensure safe operation, all power installations, projectors, and servers were set up to be redundant.

The World in a Grain of Sand The energy of the desert The central theme for the show is the energy of the desert with elements coming to life and forming through sand. Sand is a powerful force of nature, a superpower that transforms Qatar from its traditions into the modern-day empire that it is today. Sand particles are vibrating, dancing, and swirling rhythmically with the music to create patterns and forms. Animals, fossils, and dhows, iconic architecture, and cultural buildings unique to Qatar emerge from the desert. With the power of sand, they transform to the modern stadiums housing one of the most important sports events of the world in 2022.
