Looking For Advice Re: Art Gallery Style Projector Display in My Home

I have done a crapton of research and have learnt a lot about projectors but still feel as if I haven't found what I am looking for so I'm hoping that the true experts among this sub will be able to shepherd me to more fertile pastures.

I have a large white wall in my place. There is a space diagonal (on an angle) to it that I could put a small shelf. I would like to put a projector there and be able to have rotating images as an art display. I already have a large TV but I'm looking for a more ethereal feel without edges and where I can pick and choose themes.

I will tell you things I have picked up from the research about what I think is important to the project:

  1. Image is more important than audio.
  2. I don't want to spend a lot on power and I hate cords so battery powered would be ideal or wireless but I'm not totally averse to cords.
  3. Lumens count as the image needs to be seen in daylight as well.
  4. Secondary (but less important uses) could be using the projector to trace or block art projects and to project movies for outdoor movie nights.
  5. I am a Canuck so need to be able to ship here.
  6. I don't have a lot of dosh so $400 CDN clams is the absolute ceiling.
  7. I'd prefer if the images were able to upload off my phone (apple) or somehow be changed or rotated and the software was not highly involved as I have a brain disorder and if it's a 'bad day' I can't operate finicky things :)

Thanks in advance for any recco's!
