Creatmosphere created this installation to give the audience an alternative experience of the house and grounds at Compton Verney. Interactive stations allow the audience to colour paint the landscape including major trees and the different side of the mansion and chapel planted by ‘Capability’ Brown.
This light project transformed the entire site in a new lit enviroenment at night which was nonexistant before the project. It also gave a new infrastructure to be able to technically deliver it including power and controls wireless and new solar technology.
First we had long discussions with curator on how to approach this project. Then presentations to the executive board of the gallery and engagement with the education team to deliver an outreach school participative element of the installation. Then discussions with landscape and grounds team to integrate technically the project to the site. The Creatmosphere team delivered the designs, programmed the lights, designed the infrastructure, and came up with the interactive designs that would work for the audience to enjoy playing with.
Creatmosphere aimed at using the least amount of power as possible and even generated some of it by using 1000 solars lights to create a mapping display of trees and water on the site. The audience controls were made using the latest in wireless technology.

CODA: Collaboration of Design + Art
The global online community that celebrates design projects featuring commissioned artworks.
[ manifesto ]
Art matters. Attention to the details of our environment leads to love of place, which brings us to take responsibility for the spaces where we live and work. And by extension, the people with whom we live and work. And by extension, to our local communities, our cities, our nations, and our world.
We champion the role of artists in our society. We need artists to provide us with inspiration, creativity, and imagination, and to help us envision a better world.
Architects and designers know that remarkable design can change everything. They connect the dots across disciplines, collaborating with artists to make the world a more beautiful place. They are the ultimate patrons of the arts.
In the process, design professionals promote imagination and creativity, and through their commissions, make original art integral to and accessible in people's lives.
Art in our public and private spaces helps us fight ordinary buildings, ordinary streets, ordinary cities. We celebrate the extraordinary.
The architecture of our buildings and the design of our interiors affect our happiness and well-being. Each of us deserves a daily dose of inspiration.
