In late 2017 i was invited to collaborate with my good friend Jonny Kofoed from Assembly on a large scale LED light installation on Auckland's iconic Harbour bridge.
It was a great exercise in design restraint, given that the lights are only fixed to skeletal framework of the bridge, so no comfortable box to make pictures inside.
As collaborating director I mostly worked on finding and telling the story embedded within the 6 minute launch display. The LEDs are a permanent feature of the bridge, I hope to get another chance to build content for this 1000 meter wide canvas again sometime.
This video is a pre-show visualization using the Unreal VR engine. The main difference on the night was that the LTSA who administer the bridge gave us (very last minute) permission to switch the streetlights off on the bridge to maximise impact.
The show was viewed by thousands of people both in Auckland and around the world through multiple streaming feeds.
