The brief was to set-up before sun down, nest the projector out of site and then set the tone for chill fun. Due to the lay of the land we were able to map the OKC sign affectively using one 4500 lumen Epson and some LED uplighting on the trees. The primary material used was "light" and the letter dimensions are 22'W x 10'H x 2.5'D.
This light based project had less emphasis on art in the traditional since less around art in the traditional sense, the focus was on creating a one off experience. To provide the audience as they rolled in and out through the night.
The process in this case was heavily influenced by the medium. Ferris wheel lighting systems are very limited in their scope of programming. Combining that with led and projection mapping elements onto large steel type was an additional challenge. Our unique skill sets, unified allowed us to push the boundaries of those technologies and apply artistic values to allow the creation of a coordinated visual experience. The boundaries, as they often due, and the combination of the mediums actually resulted in more creative uses of systems which attempted alone or individually would have not resulted in a coherent presentation.

[ 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.
