Projection at Glasgow Royal Concert Hall

The job, by Keyteq, used 15,000 lumens Christie LX1500 projectors at every site. The exception was at Norwich Castle where the company used two stacked Christie Roadster S+20Ks (20,000 lumens) to deliver a 25-metre image on to the castle walls over a 70-metre throw distance.

The other venues ranged from Hull’s Maritime Museum to London’s National Gallery.

The brief for each event was that it needed to look like a guerilla projection, so it wasn’t to be pixel-mapped or look overly polished.

Logistically, the exercise for the BBC was conceived as a series of single-crew projections depicting 10-12 paintings on to the surfaces during a five minute loop. All sites were switched on simultaneously at 5pm and ran continuously until 10pm.

The projection rigs were set up in a range of contexts including the backs of vans, car parks, and buildings across the road from the target wall.
