On arrival at ECOS visitors enter a huge cylindrical space with an
angled roof, though which a controlled amount of sun light projects
rainbows around the space on to a time grid, forming the Peter Erskin
sundial. The video installation is designed for this space and is
projected using three projectors spanning 12 meters x 3 meters.
The intention of the piece was to excite and stimulate the audience
by presenting the issues in an unexpected and motivating form, taking
the audience by surprise rather than giving them the expected natural
history intro. The resulting five minute piece acts as a spectacular
title sequence to the environmental centre, mixing the
expected natural imagery with creative use of text and graphics in
an unexpected format.
A radio tuner soundtrack, allowing contradictory statements and samples
to be used to introduce ideas rather than tell a linear story. The
result is a captivating mix of positive and negative ideas, that are
spun together through a radio show format with a strong soundtrack
created by Scanner.
We also created four interactive programs
for the ECOS centre, exploring environmental issues.
