Mike Smith Studio was commissioned to design and produce multiple video projection screens in various formats. The screens were circular, rectangular and elliptical – all in the form of a cross. MSS was to develop and design a production system that could be applied to different projection ratios for future installations. The proportions of the screens fit precisely within the given aspect ratios, the outer edges are enclosed in the framework to provide even tension across the surface, and the edges at the cross joint form a tight fit. For ease of transportation the cross screens were to fold, to be light and compact, and were to be simple to install without extensive assembly work.
