The King’s Affair

In 2017, 2018 and 2019, we created the projection show for the King’s Affair inside the King’s Chapel, Cambridge, UK.

Our objective was to bring the audience together and feed their imagination with ideas of exploration. The design also had to tie in with the event theme ‘Music of the Spheres’. So we created a series of projection discs which acted as portals into mathematical diagrams and astrological charts.

Footage was captured and edited in with a mixture of archival space exploration footage and old George Melies films.

The band would meet regularly where we would experiment with various sounds and images that would harmonise into a succinct show.

At the event, we captured footage of the crowd having fun and being part of the celebration. This footage was used to form one layer within the projection screens, bringing the audience into the work.
