santralistanbul Museum of Energy
The Silahtarağa Power Plant's first two engine rooms, built in 1913 and 1921 respectively, were reinforced and converted into the santralistanbul Museum of Energy, retaining as many original elements as possible.
The first step in the power plant’s conversion to Museum of Energy was to halt the corrosion of the turbine generators and other machinery which had set in as a result of disuse since the plant’s decommissioning in 1983. Teams of experts moved in to clean up the machinery and apply a protective anti-corrosion sealant. Thereafter, the number one turbine generator group was restored to its original appearance of 1931. Meanwhile, the number three turbine generator group, which had been dismantled when production stopped at the plant, was preserved exactly as left.
In the Museum of Energy's number one and two Engine Rooms, visitors currently have the chance to see the AEG, Brown Boveri, Siemens and Thomson Houston made turbine generator groups. These were the key components of electricity generation at the Silahtarağa Power Plant and reflect the advanced technology of the age. santralistanbul.org
The highly-anticipated film Racing Extinction (racingextinction.com) made its Colorado debut at the 2015 Boulder International Film Festival (biff1.com). Racing Extinction, directed by Academy Award-winner Louie Psihoyos (The Cove), is a project of the Oceanic Preservation Society (OPS) that features an unlikely team of activists and innovators that hatch a bold mission to save endangered species. To illuminate the documentary's important mission, the festival brought the 'undercover mobile eco-projection' vehicle from the film to inspire the communities of Denver and Boulder.
We were asked to film the car's special visit and created this video for BIFF's Closing Night to recap the experience. The custom Tesla Model S (teslamotors.com) made for the film is a modified electric car designed and engineered by Obscura Digital. The state of the art technology includes an electroluminescent paint job from Darkside Scientific, a FLIR (forward looking infrared) camera that enables visualization of C02 emissions and a customized video system that projects clips and images of threatened species on large-scale surfaces. To spread the word and share your sightings, use the hashtags #RacingExtinction and #ProjectingChange.
Special thanks to The Twisted Foundation and LTSTBS (Life's Too Short to be Stingy) for their generosity in bringing this experience to #2015BIFF.

The project Murmur has recently been adapted to a live performance within the renowned french music event « Les Victoires de la musique 2015 ».
Entitled for the occasion as « Murmur whispers », this staging is the product of a close collaboration between the music group ALB (deezer.com/artist/467584) and the visual design studio Chevalvert (chevalvert.fr).
