Flown at Caerphilly Castle

One of the great things about receiving a Lumen Prize is that you get to exhibit the winning piece as part of a touring exhibition. The first location on this year's tour is Caerphilly Castle.

The castle is an impressive building. The exhibition was installed in the main hall - an equally impressive room dating back to the 1300s. Unlike previous installs, this location lent itself to the artwork being floor-mounted (basically we couldn't make any holes in the walls for the supports!).

Esther produced an underlying structure that was then covered with sheets and the flown lighting and diffusers were placed on top. Since WiFi was not available at the location (I could barely get 3G) I programmed the artwork to run in a generative mode. The result was just right. It looked as good as it ever has.

The exhibition runs until the 28th November 2016. My Pictures from the install can be found here on Flickr.
