About the Project
This year, Toby, Travers & Erween have joined Artist Richard Mclester on our project The Light – an art installation & performance in Salisbury Cathedral. They’ve been given the task of bringing Richard’s ideas to life; specifically his vision of projecting film from the inside of our giant illuminated globe, that will hang inside the cathedral! The work has taken them through the realms of soldering, programming, engineering, electronics, agile project management and more!

We’re really proud of their efforts & would love to show you what they’ve achieved.

The team has been working really hard over the last few months to build a Projection Module. The module will eventually be fitted inside the Globe and enable us to project film from the inside out – onto the Globe’s surface.

Not only has the team had to overcome the problem of hanging the projectors securely inside the globe, they’ve also had to design a system that allows the projectors to move. This allows the projected film to be re-angled once the globe is suspended.

Once the globe is hanging, everything has to be remotely controlled – from video playback & powering the projectors on/off safely – to controlling the angle of projection.

We can’t wait to see the finished result!
