Stage FX for Daedelus 2018

A digital programmable volumetric light sculpture designed to be scalable and easily transported. The machines can plug directly into a lighting director's system to fully integrate with event stage design and production. Commissioned by the musical artist Daedelus and co-funded by the Creative Europe Programme for the European Union, the machines made their debut in Los Angeles before going on to the Sónar Festival in Barcelona and performances in New York and London.

THE CHALLENGE
Design and build a limited-production, controllable, scalable, mechanical feast for the eyes to serve as backdrop for live music events around the world.

Scale from 10'x10' to 40'x40' and up. Set up in less than 20 minutes by a single person (me, it turned out). And fit in 2 Pelican cases able to be checked as normal airline luggage.

They are built to withstand hours of spinning and vibration with aluminum frames and steel folding legs that can be bolted to the stage floor if necessary.
