I SAW THREE SHIPS
We were delighted to be invited to work with Portsmouth Historic Dockyard, to develop a large scale interactive piece for their Boathouse 6. Originally used to raise boats from the mast pond for servicing, our projection played with this concept. Running throughout December, participants pulled giant ships wheels round, which in turn raised the majestic images of HMS Mary Rose, Warrior and Victory up the building. The ship that was raised first then revealed content specific to some of its lesser known stories or objects, creating a mesmerising show across the dockyard.
The piece required complex triggering and remote access throughout, and featured a specially recorded version of the famous carol as part of its soundtrack.
