Client: City of Literature
Project: enLIGHTen/ edLIGHTen
As a celebration of Edinburgh's literary heritage, a small number of films were commissioned to illustrate famous passages. The films were designed to be projection mapped onto historic city central locations.
I worked with Conrad Molleson to design & produce a large-scale piece, illustrating a Robert Fergusson quote from the Scottish Enlightenment. The quote was taken from his poem 'Ode to a Gowdspink'. Our piece was mapped to the arched upstairs window of Waterstone’s flagship store on George Street which is 9 metres wide.
