UK - This year, Projected Image is lending its skills for an exclusive sponsor event in the lead up to Lumiere Durham - the largest light festival in the UK. Held every two years, the festival attracts 200,000 people to the historic city of Durham and features a variety of light installations around the city.
This will be the first year Projected Image has been actively involved in the event where designers from around the globe pitch for space for their temporary lighting installations.
The piece de resistance in 2015 was a joint video piece led by Ross Ashton called The World Machine. The 10-minute video featured the work of the Cosmology Department of Durham University and the Ordered Universe Project. It combined theories on the modern view of the origins of the universe, with medieval stylings and music.
Projected Image is teaming up with lighting designer Graeme Sewell from Vortex Lighting by providing free full-colour glass gobos for a sponsor reception. Their custom gobos will be used in conjunction with projectors to cast large images inside the venue. Last year, Vortex worked with Carols of Light at Durham Cathedral to brighten up the iconic columns and vaulted ceiling.
Ian Spoors, marketing manager of Projected Images stated: “We are very happy to be supporting the exclusive sponsor event by providing the glass gobos and transforming the venue. Lumiere Durham is a festival very close to our hearts and we are delighted to be doing our bit for the local community.”
