Hope is a flutter in a wing beat. Do you know which are you, a dove or a pidgeon? Hope carries the emergency of decission; must act now!
I am a dove.
I am noble, I feel love.
I bring a message of peace.
I’m calm, chic even.
On special days, I and my fellow doves burst into the sky like a bright cloud.
Or am I a pigeon?
I’m grey and a bit daft, I coo.
I’m an urban hawk’s dinner, all that’s left is a pile of feathers on a rock.
But I don’t mind the thread that’s tightly wound around my foot, I just limp on.
I know not to fly into windows, they’re just reflections of the sky.
I build my nest on an illuminated shop sign, tucked inside the letter A.
When a dog approaches, we take to the skies, sharp and fast, together. We’re less worried about the kids.
Hope is a projection work. It changes in time and that is an important story-telling feature. Duration is 3min. It is scalable.
Which kind of light sources and what other materials and equipment are used?
Fast and easy installation (one day for set up):
-6 x clay paky moving heads
-MA2 control system -support system required for the site
Somewhat more complicated but entirely possible installation:
-min. 2 x moving heads or light fixtures, that each have min. 3 slots for gobos that are changable and can be rotated, have focus and zoom as well as dim and strobe possibilities with pan/tilt
-printing of the 6 gobos that are of required size for the selected lighting fixtures
-control system that can make (and run) a cuelist
-support system required for the site
-an extra (after set up) 8 hours of programming with a programmer and artist
