Light Fantastic Production Services Support Creative Team Behind Luminary

News Image
Event production specialists Light Fantastic Production Services have supported the creative team behind 'Luminary' the recent art installation at Crossness Pumping Station devised by artists Anna Heinrich & Leon Palmer.

Commissioned by Peabody and working in partnership with Crossness Engine Trust and KD Productions, the event celebrated the 200th anniversary of the birth of Sir Joseph Bazalgette, the great Victorian engineer responsible for implementing the London sewer system.

Created as a multi-media art installation, Heinrich & Palmer's concept for Luminary was a spectacular combination of projection, audio and lighting effects. Designed around a visually stunning, ethereal experience, the project provided visitors an immersive exploration of the iconic heritage structure. Working to the specification of the artists and the KD Production team, LFPS provided all video, lighting, audio and rigging equipment to the highly original, beautifully presented production.

The show's centrepiece featured an incredible suite of images that travelled through the architecture and physical make-up of the Grade 1 listed building. Created using 3D laser scanning technology by 3Deling London the exquisitely detailed sequence featured exploded diagrams and artistic interpretations of the structure’s DNA. The video content was screened across a large theatrical voile using a pair of Panasonic RZ21K laser projectors, with triggers sent from a media server to lighting and audio departments allowing the imagery to work in harmony with the actual space.

The creative application of light added stunning highlights to the ornate cast ironwork, grand arches and pillars of the cathedral-like interior. The strategic use of a range of mains and battery powered LED units, including Chauvet Q40 floods, WellFit uplighters and Prolights Studio Cobs allowed fixtures to be placed remotely throughout the venue. The meticulously choreographed illumination was used to great effect, drawing in the imposing mechanical apparatus and huge pumps as key components of the visitor experience.

Luminary returns to Crossness Pumping Station later in the year.
