Tom Beg - Projection Mapping

Here's a Projection Mapping project produced as the final piece of Tom Beg's MA degree at UCA Rochester. Inspired by James Turrell, Dan Flavin, Keith Sonnier, Olafur Eliasson and a number of other artists and practitioners, Tom set about creating a projection installation aboard LV21 - a decommissioned lightship currently moored at Gillingham Pier in the county of Kent in the United Kingdom.

In order to develop content for the animations, he worked in conjunction with an event called International Lighthouse and Lightship Weekend - a worldwide amateur radio festival dedicated to the education and continued practice of radio and Morse code communication. The animations feature messages written in Morse code as visualised by dots and dashes.

Looked brilliant when actually there. Gave a wonderful atmosphere when down below the deck.Also the first of the two link does not work correctly :)

Great to see this picked up on the always great, always eclectic 'Flooby Nooby' - and yes, it was a great installation as experienced below deck, amongst the dust and rusted chains! Little bright corners of magic...
