Riaan Cilliers' epic silver shoot is published online:
Noel was getting a bit steampunk in the studio today with this wonderful contraption... Things were much cooler before digital came along and took the fun out of everything.
As part of the Beams Festival 2014, we created 'Living Room'; an interactive installation responding to the festival's creative brief of 'utopia'. The citizens of this presupposed utopia were participants who wandered into our live photography studio over the course of the festival evening. Photographed as if within their own living room, their images were captured, composed, and projected into a re-imagined city against the brickwork of the old brewery.
The final (zoomable) projection image has now gone live - view it here.
(If it doesn't zoom the first time, just try refreshing the page a few times.)
Thanks to everyone who contributed to our city.
It was discovered that, just as in all great cities, the inhabitants partook in exhibitionism and hedonism; violence and bravado; propositions and refutations; and of course, love.
More images of the evening, and the final projection, can be found at:
