Hi All !
So…. probably the biggest project we have been involved in the design and implementation of this year has been “Temple 2015”, a cross community outdoor art installation project based in Londonderry, working alongside and for the world famous Burning Man temple designer “David Best”. For this project we were contracted directly to Artichoke Productions London, and was our 3rd piece working with Artichoke.
The Temple itself was 89ft high, and custom laser cut & manufactured from the best quality birch plywood, before being built together like a giant airfix kit with a crew of over 120 volunteers at the helm.
Check out the temple website at http://templederry-londonderry.com/about for more details on the project
Our own part in the Temple Project was to consult, design, source, and implement a custom built lighting system for the temple, to be powered silently with a generator, with a variable dimmer system to be applicable to all levels of the modularly built temple.
We executed our plan successfully from concept to implementation, consulted directly with David Best, were well within our budget, managed all resource and manpower, and passed all safety compliance testing with local council with no hitches at all.
On the evening of the burn, our efforts were observed not only by the 36,000 people who cam to view the temple, but also all around the world, as the BBC and many other national / international TV crews turned up to document the event.
Yet again, through our partnership with Artichoke, we have served our beautiful community with Art through endeavours of Artists, Technicians and the community themselves.
We are exceptionally proud to have been a part of this project. Check some of our photos at http://www.equipeaudiovisual.com/temple-2015-photos/
Till the next one….
