AV MURAL, NORTHCOTT THEATRE, Exeter
We just finished a really exciting project, it was a commission from Exeter Northcott Theatre to bring their foyer space to life with photographic images and stories from their archives.
We brought in a muralist whom we co-designed then painted the 30 meter long wall, then we used a pair of projectors to fill parts of the mural with light and color.
Now the venue is showing the animated piece every day before each performance.
This 'projection mural' is an innovative format that combines the best aspects of projection-mapping and graphic design. Perhaps the crucial advantage is that when there is no sound and video playing, the piece is still present and looks fantastic! And when the video starts it magically brings the mural to life and creates a real 'wow' moment.
Mural: Dave Bain, Music: Richard Hammarton
