Student shrinks a day to 24 minutes
Emily Beckmann, a final stage student at the University of Derby, recently
staged an exhibition at the City Gallery, Leicester. She chose a Zero 88
Alcora desk to control the lighting of the exhibition, which was entitled
"Horti-Spectaculum". She transformed a typically white gallery space into
a garden setting with the use of wood chippings, pebbles, exotic plants
and silk flowers. The garden sequenced through dawn, daylight, dusk and
night in about 24 minutes. A garden shed formed an integral part of the
exhibit, and contained viewing lenses through which images of other gardens
could be seen in 3D.
The changing lighting effects were made by using the Alcora, which
Zero 88 had loaned her for the duration of the exhibition. Emily commented,
"the Alcora made it possible for me to synchronise the lighting and sound
both easily and effectively. A very small alteration of the sliders created
a vast array of dramatic visual effects".
