Delighted to be working alongside Tate Britain and St Paul’s Cathedral providing the ultra high power projection equipment for the William Blake activity running from 28th November until 2nd December from 16.30 – 21.00 each evening.
William Blake’s final masterpiece illuminates the iconic dome of St Paul’s Cathedral to celebrate the artist’s birthday. The image projected is from the dramatic illustration Ancient of Days 1827 and was described by Blake as ‘the best I have every finished’.
Tate Britain chose St Paul’s Cathedral as it is home to the most visited Blake memorial with thousands visiting the crypt each year, to recreate his vision on a monumental scale.
Buckingham Palace facade was illuminated with a rainforest design projected on to the building on Sunday night, ahead of The Queen’s Green Planet documentary with Sir David Attenborough.
The vibrant image was displayed as part of a global conservation
initiative in the Queen’s name, using the palace as a blank canvas to take the
viewer into a forest canopy space.
It features Her Majesty’s Commonwealth Canopy Project (QCC) logo embedded with a pattern of foliage and tree silhouettes, transforming the iconic British building.
The project seeks to preserve precious areas of forest for future
generations, and will also be the subject of the ITV documentary, which
features The Queen and Attenborough and will be broadcast tonight at 9pm.
The projection also comes at the start of a week that will see
representatives of 53 countries gather in London for the Commonwealth Heads of
Government Meeting (Chogm).
Environmental themes and other issues of common interest will be
discussed during the summit.
The Queen has planted more than 1,500 trees all over the world during
the course of her 66-year reign.
