The Lumiere light festival hit London this January, showcasing a whole host of installations across London ranging from flying fish to projections mapped on some of London’s most loved buildings. I was lucky enough to help out with FIELD’s installation, titled Spectra-3.
The third in the Spectra series of installations, it is described as: “an immersive audio-visual light experience: A physical-digital sculpture that tells three stories of communication, through a choreography of movement, animated lights and spatialised sound.”
The result was hypnotising and beautiful to watch. The space was also filled with a score coming from a multi-channel setup that encompassed the sculpture, creating an absorbing atmosphere.
As well as helping FIELD install the sculpture I worked on the documentation shoot, assisting the lovely James Medcraft to photograph and film the installation. It was very chilly but we powered on through the night and early hours of the morning, and had a truly enjoyable time.
Thank you to all of the team for including me on a great installation, and congratulations on the final result – here’s to Spectra-4!
