Now in its fourth year, science, culture and music event Bluedot Festival celebrated the 50th Anniversary of the Moon landing with extraordinary projections on the Lovell Telescope. Bluman Associates collaborated with Illuminos and Jodrell Bank’s Tim O’Brien to create a series of unique visual experiences for the festival audience.
Commissioned by Festival Promoter ‘From the Fields’, Illuminos created Luna Loops; a two-hour visual narrative designed using some of the 19,000 hours of audio ‘loops’ created between mission control and the lunar module, fused with signals and recordings generated by the Lovell Telescope as it tracked the moon landings.
Luna Loops was a feature event on all nights of the three-day festival. Bluman Associates' role was to manage all aspects of the projection including the projection design and technical production. This was one of the first outings of the new disguise gx 2c media servers which were driving the show.
