Revealing Krishna: Journey to Cambodia's Sacred Mountain

Journey to a sacred mountain in the floodplains of southern Cambodia with the Revealing Krishna exhibition at the Smithsonian’s National Museum of Asian Art.

Showcasing the monumental sculpture of the Hindu god Krishna, the exhibition explores the piece in the context of its original environment for the first time. The story of this sculpture – spanning 1,500 years and three continents – concludes in unveiling the newly restored Krishna in an exhibition that integrates art, immersive video installations, and interactive design.

We lent our expertise from decades of theater design to create appropriate mood, movement, color, and direction for the augmented reality experience. To accurately portray the historical images and locations, we paid close attention to color temperature, direction, and beam pattern of the images. We collaborated with the exhibit team on material use, lighting, geometries, and control solutions for the interactives to bring the entire experience to life.
