The Installation was built over 4 days and was constructed of 2 by 1 planks and 6mm chip board. Mostly made out of reclaimed wood. I wanted the space to feel intimate but also allow people to move around inside. The wall is about 2/3 smaller on the back than the front, creating a tapering affect that can only be seen once you enter the inside.
I had to cut the cables on all the speakers to get them into the wall and then re-solder them once in place. To create a tidy space I drilled holes into each speaker to pull the extra wires for led’s through.
I decided to place the images behind the speaker. I experimented with drilling holes into the speakers themselves, but then decided against this as it changed the form of the speakers and also i was unsure where all the electronics where underneath them. The images created a wonderful spectacle and extended the individual image sizes to cover up to 5 times the scale. The shadows also create a shadow to the children themselves, a pause in there dynamic actions. There movements are now frozen and unfrozen in time by the flashing on and off the individual lighting.
