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.
