Symposium - Brilliant Minds 2015

Symposium, the groundbreaking Swedish tech & music-gathering, asked Obscura to design and implement a complete visual solution for the event’s climax: the Brilliant Minds Conference. The two day event brought together the world’s forerunners within technology, media and music as well as showcasing some of Sweden’s hottest musical exports.

360 visuals was created that transformed the entire event space using 15 projectors. We also designed the show-visuals for selected performances, including Zara Larsson, Mapei, Buster Moe and Maria Hazell.

Very pleased with the opportunity to collaborate with visionaries Daniel Ek, Ash Pournouri and the rest of the Symposium team. Looking forward to next year’s event!
