HERMES FESTIVE - ELECTRIC DREAM ROLLERCOASTER
The 2019 theme was The Hermes Dream. I chose to take the idea of the rollercoaster as a representation of our mind during the festive season – how it moves, tilts. twists and turns and we deal with the fun and chaos that embodies that time of year.
I collaborated with Andy Knights to create the window while VAST created the light effect. The track was built with a cavity and a timed light that ran through all the windows in sequence. While all the spray work on the cars and sheep were done in a flip tone paint so it change colour as you past the windows.
The rollercoaster track moves from each window which represents a different aspect of Christmas; The vortex is the fun, the treble clef the music, the heart our time with loved ones and finally sleep and dreams amongst sheeplike cloud we can count.
