Makhtesh Ramon visitor center

Creation of Makhtesh Ramon

Israel Nature and Parks Authority

A video-mapping display demonstrating in a novel way how Ramon Crater was created. To illustrate the geological processes behind the crater’s formation an elastic textile surface was planned, operated by dozens of mechanical pistons and creating changing topography during the presentation. To achieve maximum projection precision the surface was scanned by laser and built precisely in a 3D environment. The entire display is projected onto a dynamic surface.
