What would it feel like if our city was engulfed by water?
This art installation was displayed at King’s Cross in London during the 3rd Lumiere London or Winter Lights festival. Granary Square was virtually flooded with waves of etheneral blue light to get people thinking about global warming and rising sea levels as well as how we can use water in positive ways, such as generating electricity. The work was also accompanied by a piece of music to listen to on a phone.
2016-2018. LEDs, software, lenses, humidity and a site specific location design.

Info about Lighting:
UK – Manchester- based dbn Lighting are supplied an integrated lighting and visual design plus equipment – including lighting and LED screens – to The Warehouse Project (WHP).
dbn’s Pete Robinson created the production and lighting design for all three rooms in the space.
there is a strip of dbn’s 12.5 mm LED screen 13m wide by 2m deep at the back of the stage flanked either side of the PA wings at front truss level by two vertical LED drops at 1 metre and half a metre wide by 2m deep.
Several panels of LED are mounted on the front truss facing into the audience, and the visual surfaces are completed with a versatile 10 metre wide by one metre deep strip of LED – divided into four sections each mounted on wheeled tank traps – which can be placed onstage in different configurations according to the band or DJ set up.
dbn supplies all the processing, scaling and switching, while the video content for each week is supplied by a third party and/or the performing artists.
The idea is that the LED screen design will work on different perspectives whether you are standing right close up to the stage or right down the far end of the room – there will always be some eye-catching visuals in view.
