Multi-touch installation for Football World Cup 2018 Organising Committee. "Russia — the Country of Sports" forum, 8—10 of September 2011, Saransk, Russia.
8 round multi-touch displays were mounted into 18 meters wide wall in a individual pavilion. Each of them running interactive presentation of the history of all World Cups. The upcoming 2014 (Brazil) and 2018 (Russia) event's sections had comprehensive information on the cities where games will be played and stadiums which will be built by that time.
The installation was based on a series of unique photos of real balls from the finals of past football world cups. Visitors could rotate every ball's 3D model, immersing into the history of football. The photos were provided by Jens Heilmann, who has been "hunting down" the historic football balls for years. New photos are posted regularly on his project's sitetheworldcupballs.com.
On the 17th of December 2011 our installation got FWA Site of the Day award. FWA stands for Favourite Website Awards, an industry recognised internet award program and inspirational portal, established in May 2000.
