Tuffery / Rhombus installation system design

1 03 2010

ARTIVIST : creative on a unique stage set & projection system for SirMT (Michel Tuffery) in a collaboration with Rhombus.

The demands of this system were simple but impressive; ARTIVIST : creative JoFF Rae & Michel Tuffery M.N.Z.M. developed this system with specific choreographed content & performance.

“This is an amazing project that is specifically for export” says JoFF, “the idea has been met with gasps of excitement from key International festival organisers & they are building their productions to suit our installation!”

ARTIVIST : creative is investing in specialised equipment including fibre optic dual SC cable to meet the specific demands of Tuffery… “he has asked for cameras in specific areas of the installation that are difficult to get to – especially when he wants to be at front of house” says JoFF Rae, “this system involves the Ohm64 controller, the 21″ Wacom Cintiq interactive pen display & some trick kit on the DV camera tip… the fibre optic cable is expensive but will make a massive difference!”

Other features of the custom kit are the 5 massive projectors, the 9m square 3D mesh structure known as the ‘Kina’ (a fantastic mesh sculpture by Tuffery that receives a multiple composite projection through it) & composed visuals across 30 square meters of projections.

Tuffery uses a library of archive footage from the Pacific Islands including Rarotonga & Samoa with modern images & video loops creating a visual narrative to compliment the exquisitely produced music of Rhombus.
