SuperReal, an immersive digital art show, dazzled audiences over the summer with mind-bending visuals projected on the interior of the landmarked Cunard Building. Now, the imaginative team at Moment Factory is teaming up with Cipriani to bring back the stunning interactive show with a new nighttime twist. Once again, starting on December 15th, the 12,000 square foot Great Hall of the Cunard Building will be transformed.

The Great Hall was once the ticketing lobby for the Cunard cruise line. The walls and 30-foot vaulted ceiling are adorned with nautical ornamentation from painted maps to sculpted sea creatures. In order to transform the space, these architectural features have been digitally scanned and projection-mapped in 360°. Half of the 12,000 square feet space features mirrored flooring that reflects vaulted ceiling above to completely envelope guests in the experience.

The show “blurs the lines between the physical and the digital, illusion and reality,” combining the historic architectural features with new layers of technology. This time around, SuperReal is enhancing the show with a new nighttime experience. During the day, children of all ages can witness the space transform from a vast, imposing structure to a playful and interactive feast for the senses. And for the first time at night, the new SuperReal Classic ticket will feature a full world of experiences including hors d’oeuvres and a bellini courtesy of Cipriani’s.
