Copia – “Wine Bottle”
2006: Napa, CA
“Projector in a Bottle Display”
Designer: West Office Exhibition Design
Wine is made in 49 of the 50 states. If you press the button corresponding to your state, you will see the magnum bottle show a series of 10 random labels from that state.
No, there is no “projector in a bottle” trick here. It is all done with mirrors and the projector under the table.
This is a real bottle with the inside sandblasted to form an imaging surface and the rest of the bottle silvered. The images were scanned and pre-distorted to make them appear straight when projected on the curved side of the bottle.
