2015… so far

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 72ft 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….


At last… an update LOL!

OK, so hey we’ve been too busy off building our wee kingdom of equipé…    …that we kind of neglected our website a bit.

So we’ve been up to a lot of exciting stuff really – we set up a few band contracts for the likes of Manouche Swing, The liberals, Danny Conlon and others, but we’ve also been doing loads of freelance AV work in the corporate sector.

The stuff that we are most proud of is our work in the outdoor art installation events sector – Probably the biggest and most prolific of which is that we got to work and design / implement an art piece for Krzysztof Wodiczko, a famous projection artist, originally from Poland, now a professor in Harvard University in Massachussets.  This is now known to be the most contraversial art piece ever created for and within Northern Ireland – and we are proud to have created / curated this piece in partnership with, and under the art direction of Krzysztof.

See more about this project here – but for now check out the video below.
