I’m kind of embarrassed that it’s taken a stern deadline but… it’s happening. What? Well here is a sketch from 1999.
And here is a modelling test from 2012.
This guy is a Big Mouth Singer, and one of the musical instruments that feature in an installation code named Firelight. If you have suffered my company for very long you might think … it that the same project as he’s been wanking on about since 1999? And you would earn a gold star on the forehead!
The difference was in 1999 I simply could not achieve the results I wanted. VRML didn’t cut it and neither did MPEG-4 once that came and went.In 2003 you might remember these guys:
…that ran in AXEL (sorry I don’t have the work anymore). And then there was Anark and then I had to give up for a while.
In 2012 there are the tools, there is a budget and there is a deadline. Because of this it must be finished and because of this many ideas will have to be cut and the whole thing scaled back to a feasible size. But there’s 13 years of sketches and plot lines and discussions and many guest appearances of the things I’ve tried out (yes, including some airplanes). Mostly there will be many instruments for you to play, rooms full of them.
also appeared in a 1999 sketch book and as a simple VRML toy that same year. He’s shaping up to be something a bit more exotic this year
He plays the drums. Loud.
Firelight will get updates throughout the year, so stay tuned for the real name and venue a.s.a.p!
