Recently we worked with visual artist, Enamel Hoque on his piece entitled “Portrait of Baul” as part of the Interfaces Exhibition. The exhibition took place at the Barbican and our work recived pride of place on one of the enormous pillars.
The work, a triptych of video of the traveling Baul musicians of Bangal gave us the oppertunity to use our new home grown “EPSeed” Media server system on it’s first project – more about that in the blog (link below).
The results, combining large-scale site specific video projection from three wirelessly synched 21K projectors in portrait and 3 channel audio were staggering. The artwork transformed the column in the foyer into a glowing pilar of light and sound: “the ‘Baul’ emerged from the concrete surface to sing, before disolving once again into the architecture of the Barbican”.
We look forward to working with the team in the future.
